Share the Load

Our 2019 KNU Operating Budget for the neighborhood size is bare bones, and the modest $50 dues request is a drop in the bucket! Share the load and contribute to the daily operations in YOUR neighborhood. You are an integral piece of the Kessler Park community, and we need ALL RESIDENTS to participate & pay their dues, not just the same good folks. To pay your dues, click here. A special thanks to those of you who step up over and over again in so many ways!
