The Edgewood Village is a membership organization, a local village of The
Village Common of RI. 2020 is our inaugural year as a village, and we are
excited to share our development and plans for services. Our leadership,
the Edgewood Village Steering Committee, concerns itself with our
Village’s needs, plans, and members’ engagement.
members are Barbara Schermack and Sylvia Weber, co-chairs; Roberta
Hazen Aaronson, Sorrel Devine, Michael Fournier, Sharon Kernan, Michael
Moore, Ellen O’Hara, Carol Reagan Shelton, and Alisson Walsh. Our
Village is represented on the Village Common Coordinating Council by
Barbara Schermack and Sorrel Devine, with Ellen O’Hara as an alternate.
This group 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.
