Welcome to
the City of

    As the Mayor of the City of Bolivar I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special Christmas greeting to all the citizens of Bolivar and Hardeman County.   This is the time when we celebrate one of the joyous events of the Christian Calendar – Christmas.  This is the period when Christians around the world remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who gave salvation to all.  

  We all have a unique way to celebrate this event; giving special gifts,

exchanging warm greetings and trying different recipes, in addition to

the traditional foods we relish, particularly at this time.

    However, as Mayor I am urging all citizens to think about the deeper

meaning of this season.  Christ came with a mission, a sense of purpose

and full knowledge of his role and ultimate destiny.  We, too, have a

mission to protect and care for our natural, economic, social, cultural

and spiritual environment in addition to spreading love, good will,

and peace to all mankind.

  Let us remember the emergency services personnel, many of whom

will be working at Christmas to keep us safe –  fire, rescue, police,

ambulance, and the utility departments.  Let us also remember those

who defend our freedom, our soldiers, and their families this


  On behalf of the City of Bolivar, I  want to wish every citizen

a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  

God bless you all,

Barrett Stevens
