The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum announced Tuesday that Richard "Dick" Neitz has been elected president of the board of directors. Neitz, owner of Neitz Real Estate in South Yarmouth, is a longtime Cape Cod resident.
The JFK Hyannis Museum, according to their release, is the fourth largest visitor attraction/destination on Cape Cod. The museum celebrates the strong ties between President John F. Kennedy, his family and Cape Cod. Exhibits feature videos and photographs of the Kennedy Clan on Cape Cod between 1934 and 1963.
"I am excited to serve during an important time in the museum's history with a planned renovation in two years that will dramatically improve the museum's exhibit area," Neitz said.
Neitz is a past president of the Cape Cod Economic Development Council and a past chairman of the Board of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce. Neitz ran against State Representative Cleon Turner for the First Barnstable District seat in 2004 and again in 2006.
Including Neitz, there are fifteen members of the 2014 Board of Directors. Wendy Northcross serves at the vice president.
The John F. Kennedy Museum is at 397 Main Street in Hyannis.
