The Doylestown Rotary "Sunrisers" met on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at Coach's.  Jim Dowling introduced our invited guest speakers, Linda Wolfson and John Walko.  Linda serves as the Executive Director of VITA Education Services.  John is a volunteer and former Board President for VITA.  Linda and John provided a very interesting look at their work supporting local efforts to increase literacy.  VITA specifically support those in the criminal justice system; those who are unemployed, underemployed, and undereducated; those seeking support with English as a second language; and those seeking their GED.  Linda and John impressed the group with their passion and dedication to serving our local community, sharing amny stories of how the power of their staff and volunteers has changed lives for the better through education and decision-making support.
