The staff and board are sorry to share the sad news that Mike McCrary of Hunter, NY, passed peacefully on Wednesday, October 28th at home, surrounded by dogs and friends. Mike was a staunch supporter and friend of Extension for many years. He served on the Board of CCE Greene County from 2006 through 2011. Mike returned following the consolidation and remained on the board from 2013 through 2019. Mike was also a member of the Environment and Natural Resources Program Committee and the Siuslaw Model Forest Committee. A memorial service will be planned in the future. He will be missed!
