Bolivar, Ohio – The Bolivar-Zoar Rotary is gearing up for the launch of a new speaker series designed to address important community issues. 

Club President Justin Wallace says this program is an extension of the group's commitment to the community.

“As Rotarians, we feel it is important for the citizens in our communities to be up-to-date and informed on what goes on around them,” he says. “The speaker series is a fun and educational event for leaders and influential figures from the area to inform and discuss with the public, issues we find important. After all, knowledge is power!”

Anyone is welcome to attend the series to learn more about how they can enhance current efforts or pursue new efforts to make our community better.
