Pawtucket, Rhode Island
Cy began and led the development of the first Village in Rhode Island (the Providence Village) and continued to collaborate with others to start additional Villages in Rhode Island. A Village is a community of mutual support to fundamentally enhance and change the experience of growing older in Rhode Island with members and volunteers helping one another with rides, household chores, snow removal, and other tasks. Cy created the documents needed to appropriately support development of a Village and also raised funds needed for development of RI Villages. Cy continued to work diligently, skillfully and tirelessly to create the Village Common of RI, the umbrella organization over all the Villages in Rhode Island.
