Today, June 29, 2021, was an exciting start for our Lions’ District 16J with our new District Governor Lion Varsha Naik’s Oath taking ceremony at the Minie B. Veal Community Center in Edison. Lion Varsha eagerly continues to carry the baton of Lionism from our Immediate PDG, Kevin Kosobucki and his predecessors of leadership. Lion Varsha comes with a certain joy for her position as a leader in service to and for others and as one of the many grest world-wide Lions on fire for good of the community and all those in need of practical help and holistic transformation in their lives. Her beautiful emblem swirls in flowing directions of togetherness and forms a heart with the motto “Together we can”!The swearing-in for the Office of District Governor took place in unison with the Online Zoom-connected Plenary Session of the International Lions’ Convention minutes after the thrilling Oath taking of the new International President, and Brooklyn-New Yorker, Lion Alexander. Lion Varsha and her husband Lion Subodh Naik were clearly excited to be part of such a great tradition during the emotional Oath-taking.
