Edgewood Village is a membership organization, a local village of The Village Common of Rhode Island, formally affiliated in July, 2020. Our leadership, the Edgewood Village Steering Committee, concerns itself with our Village’s needs, plans, and members’ engagement.
Steering Committee members are Barbara Schermack, Chair; Roberta Hazen Aaronson, Ali Cabral, Sorrel Devine, Michael Fournier, Sharon Kernan, Michael Moore, Carol Reagan Shelton, Alisson Walsh, and Sylvia Weber. Our Village is represented on the Village Common Coordinating Council by Barbara Schermack and Sharon Kernan. This body provides direction and operational support for all Villages.
Membership is open to all. Membership fees are suggested at varying
levels, with a “write in your fee” option to accommodate everyone’s
economic circumstances. It is our hope that the membership fee is never a
barrier to joining our Village. To learn more about membership fees, please

We ask that our members embrace the core values of The Village Common of RI: generosity, inclusivity, engagement, collaboration, sustainability.
We encourage, but do not require, volunteers to be members, and members to volunteer if able. Making connections with each other and with our community is our aim.
