No one can say that the residents at Kendal on Hudson aren’t generous. Every year a collection is taken up by the Residents Association to help fund local charities.

Rockwood Hall $1,000 to pay the salary of a seasonal shepherd for Rockwood Park who will also present a program here at Kendal for those who can’t easily get into the park.
