1 August Meeting - Governor’s Visit

  • Jerry Norman was born and brought up in Te Hapua, one of a family of 19 children. He went to local schools and attended Kaitaia College. After finishing school he moved to Auckland for university and teachers’ college. But while living in Auckland, undertaking a career as a teacher and then working for the Ministry of Education to improve learning outcomes, his ancestral home remained the Far North.

  • Four decades after leaving  home Jerry has come back to his whenua - as Governor of Rotary District 9910 for 2018/19. President Valerie, Assistant Governor Liz and Kaikohe Rotary were proud to welcome welcome Governor Jerry and Fay to Kaikohe this week.

  • After a fabulous dinner put on by Kaikohe RSA, Jerry explained his vision of Rotary and the goals he has set for his year. While Rotary has struggled with attracting new members, it needs to use new forms to attract recruits. Just recently he helped establish a satellite club in Kaitaia whose members include his neice who currently works in New York and another relative who lives in Auckland. Another satellite club is about to get up and running around Jerry's North Harbour club - hoping to attract those who find it find weekly attendance at Rotary difficult.

  • Jerry said clubs have to connect and work with their communities on projects they both want. Rotary doesn't decide the solutions but helps communities achieve them. Rotary should be enjoyable and fun.

  • Jerry got out his guitar and finished his presentation by singing a  song composed by Maori academic Hirini Melbourne with accompanied by our own Don Edmonds.

  • Thank you, Jerry and Fay for taking the time to meet us. You're welcome to join us any time.
