Mashpee Police Chief Carline and Lt. Rose at the Mashpee Kiwanis meeting on June 29, 2017.

Chief Carline updated the Mashpee Kiwanis club on all of the great things that are going on with the Mashpee Police Department. The Mashpee Kiwanis Club gave the Keyclubby bears to the Chief so that police officers can have them in their cruisers to give to children during traumatic situations to help keep them calm.

The Mashpee Kiwanis Club meets Thursday mornings at 7:30 in Persy's Place restaurant and they are recruiting members to join them as they work to improve the lives of children, one child and one community at a time.

Thanks to the Mashpee 99 Restaurant and Maya Brainson and her Angel ornaments the Mashpee Kiwanis was able to present Tim and Joan Martinage of the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation numerous gift cards to replace the the items lost in a devastating fire last October.

Joan and Tim Martinage accepted the gifts this past Saturday from Tammy Gray and Terrie Cook.

The Mashpee Kiwanis continues its great work through the efforts of its members.

At the Mashpee Kiwanis Meeting on December 1st we had Speaker,Tara B. Carline, Special Police Officer &Victim /Witness Advocate of the Mashpee Police Department, talk about her efforts to help with preventing violence prevention. We also had a very special guest, Nancy Umina, whose late husband, Jerry Umina, and a long time Mashpee Kiwanis member was the Mashpee Police Dept's liaison to many agencies and the Mashpee School Dept. to be an advocate for the victims of domestic violence. We had Ms. Carline give us some ideas on how best to use the memorial donations to our club in Jerry's memory.

Mashpee Kiwanis has suffered the loss of one of its most loved members.  On September 8th, 2016 Jerry Umina passed away.  It was not unexpected.  The club had watched his failing health for some time.  Still, he came to meetings, contributed his vote on issues and completed all but the meeting the week before he passed.  His love of what he did, the way he did it, and the way he helped each and every member of the Mashpee Kiwanis, made things and events that much more fun and productive for not only our club, but all of the clubs in our Cape Cod division and, in fact, the whole New England and Bermuda district of Kiwanis. He connected with so many people while he was Lieutenant Governor and his energy was always infectious.  He was present at all major Kiwanis occasions, and always ready to help set up, break down or spend the day working at the event.  Our club members all have personal stories that involve Jerry and his quiet way of doing his best to make the project at hand a success.

Some of the positions that Jerry held in Kiwanis were as follows:

Club Treasurer – Club President -member of board of directors – Lieutenant Governor of the Cape Cod Kiwanis Clubs – in charge of wishing wells – worked at Kiwanis “One Day” every year.  The list could go on and on.  He would be the first to volunteer to go to an interclub with another Kiwanis group.  I think that was because he would try to “borrow” the visited club’s bell or gavel and “store” it until the other Kiwanians would come to visit us in Mashpee.

There will be a void in our club now that he has passed, but his legacy, his longevity, and his quiet mentoring, will be carried on in our membership.  He will be quoted often, imitated often, and loved forever.  As one member put it, Jerry was the sweetest man that you could ever disagree with.  He always made you feel better for the attempt.

Rest easy our friend, your legacy will be safe with us.
