Vice-president of Lions Clubs International Naresh Aggarwal was welcomed to Sydney with a dinner held in the Emperors Garden Restaurant, hosted by the Lions Club of Sydney Lions.
Aggarwal was elected to the position of Second International Vice-president at the Lions’ 98th International Convention held in Hawaii last June.
A member of the Batala Smile Lions Club since 1974, he has received many Lions awards up to the Ambassador of Good Will Award which is the highest honour the Lions organisation can bestow upon its members.
In addition to his Lions activities, Aggarwal has been active in numerous professional and community organisations such as the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the FICCI-SAARC Forum.
Aggarwal is visiting Australia with wife, Navita, who is also a Lion. They have two sons and one daughter and five grandchildren.
As part of the dinner a new Lions Club, Blacktown Ponds, inducted a new member increasing the Club’s membership to 28.
Aggarwal also presented Guiding Lions badges and gifts to two experienced Lions from the neighbouring Kings Langley Lions Club, John Fernandes and Derek Margerison. As Guiding Lions, John and Derek will assist the new Club for the first two years.
