Vineyard Nursing Association adds two new board members


Dr. Karen A. Kennedy of New York and Vineyard Haven and Allan R. Keith of Chilmark have joined the board of directors of the Vineyard Nursing Association.

Dr. Kennedy recently retired from a general pediatric practice in New York City, according to a VNA press release. She and her husband, Kevin, have been seasonal residents of Vineyard Haven since the early 1970’s.

Allan Keith retired to the Vineyard after a long career in investment management services. Mr. Keith is a past board member of Polly Hill Arboretum, The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society and the West Tisbury Congregational Church. He is a noted ornithologist who has authored many books, with a focus on birds in the West Indies.

“Karen and Allan bring professional experience, a love for the Vineyard and vast nonprofit board fundraising experience,” said David Thompson, development committee chairman. “We are delighted to have such dynamic people become part of the board at such a critical time of growth for the organization.”
