What We Do 

Everyone with a Kendal address is a member of its Residents’ Association. While the administration provides for food, housing, health care, and facilities, the Residents’ Association generates and supports the extracurricular activities that make Kendal such a vibrant, multifaceted place to live.

The Association is supported by a Council, whose members are elected by the residents. This Council supports committees focusing on specific interests and activities. Art, library, book clubs, Kendal Chorus, a well equipped wood shop, exercise classes in our heated pool, are examples. The Program Committee sponsors about fifty concerts and lectures annually.  In all, there are about forty interest focussed committees. And you can form your own. Two of our newest groups, harmonica and photography, were sponsored by newcomers to the community.

Kendal incorporates the Quaker values of respect, care, and trust. And we give to the larger area in which we live through individual volunteers and generous financial contributions to local nonprofits.
