We were pleasantly surprised that the Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay honored John C. Ferry and Bali Hai Realty as North Shore Employer of the Year! The distinction was given “in recognition of his outstanding leadership and contributions to the people and the business community on the North Shore of Kauai.”

On the front cover the The Garden Island Newspaper Business Section, Sunday June 8, 2014, Bill Buley wrote a wonderful article. Please copy and paste this link into your browser to view:


John C. Ferry, Bali Hai Realty is Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay Employer of the Year 2013-2014.

The Rotary Club presented John with the honor at their luncheon last Thursday June 5th . We also congratulate Marylee Fredericksen of Hanalei School who the Rotary recognized as Teacher of the Year and June Lien Hsu, the top student at Hanalei school student who won the Four Way Test Essay winner! We congratulate their excellence.

“The Rotary Club is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.” The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay definitely embodies their philosophy as they have also made it their goal to help the Kauai community in many ways: Rescue Tubes throughout the island, teacher scholarships, Hanalei Pier restoration, tutoring, etc. They exemplify community service.
