About Us

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.

Steering Committee 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 click on Join Us.
