The origin of LCBGN

It was August 2002 when the first thought was given to the formation of Leo club under the banner of Bombay Garodia Nagar. Though most of the past presidents of Lions club of Bombay Garodia Nagar thought of coming up with the Leo club during their tenure, one of them finally decided set the floor for the making of their child Club, the "Leo Club of Bombay Garodia Nagar". President Lion Usha Sajnani and Secretary Lion Kishin Khilnani started the groundwork for the same.

The first members obviously had to be cubs that had seen their parents working with the Lions name. The Lions started spreading the idea and concept of Leoism amongst the youngsters of their locality, Sindhu Baug A and formed a group of 24 youngsters, who had exceled in their own fields, some of whom were Management Students, Engineers, IT professionals etc.

With the minimum number of youths required to form a Leo Club, the first ever meeting to hold a discussion on WHY LEO CLUB was held on 15th August in the presence of one of the best Leo’s of the District 323 A2, the District president 2002-03 Leo Jignesh Mehta who cleared all thoughts about Leoism in the minds of the youths. The Word L-Leadership E- Experience O-Opportunity was now embedded was in the minds of all youth who were now ready to perform community service, receive recognition for their contributions to the community, get a chance to excel and develop character traits within a span of 20 days the Club was inaugurated on the 2nd of September ‘02 by the hands of the District Governor Lion Surinder Sharma and the team was installed by Leo Jignesh Mehta under the leadership of Leo Seema Sajnani with the Slogan "Dare to Care" for the year. The office bearers installed for the year were Secretary Leo Milan Bavishi, Treasurer Leo Pranay Gosavi and 1st V.P Leo Dipti Khilnani. After Leo Seema Sajnani, Leo Milan Bavishi has taken the initiative to take the club forward as the President for the year 03-04.
