"Being a Light We Serve" - 2024-2025 DG Bijoy Mahanti


Dear Fellow Lions,

It is my honor and privilege to address you.  I am thrilled to become the District Governor of a great District 22-B.  I appreciate the members of the Honorary Committee District 22-B, and the members of the Executive Committee of the Lions Clubs International (LCI) for their expression of faith and confidence in me by appointing me to this position.

We are in the process of building our team in filling Cabinet and Committee positions.  It is a work in progress, sometimes one step forward and two steps backward.  It goes same thing for our shared goals for the year which will be complete this week.  We will strive through this rapidly changing world.  We are the leaders whose heart leaps out at human suffering and desire to help alleviate it.  We serve and lead from love, compassion, and heart.  I commit to all of you to serve you Better & Better, as I know the Best becomes Better over time. 

Our theme for this year will be, “Being A Light We Serve”.  We are born with light from birth and shine light where we serve. As we close the Lion Year 2023-2024, let’s reflect with gratitude on the moments that have shaped us, the challenges that have strengthened us, and the blessings that have filled our lives.

Our heartfelt appreciation to our outgoing District Governor Kathy Crockett and all the Cabinet and Committee members for leading our District to a new height.  DG Kathy established and led an incredible team.

Let’s forgive and forget all the negative feelings that may have occurred during the past year. With hearts full of appreciation, let’s embrace the new Beginning with hope, optimism, and a renewed sense of purpose. We will discuss our shared goals during our first open meeting soon.  We have the power to achieve anything we set our mind to. Remembering to keep things simple can lead to better outcomes and smoother processes.

May the coming year be filled with joy, growth, and endless possibilities.

Here is to the closing one Lion Year and opening Another with gratitude, and hope. 

Stay Blessed For Better & Better,

DG Bijoy Mahanti
