    To our GTA rochdale farmers, please note:

You have likely heard of the death of Christopher Roland Michener, son of Joseph and Jeanne Michener, on June 25th at the age of 62.

You are invited to join family and friends for an interment ceremony at the Michener plot in Mount Pleasant Cemetery at 2:00 pm on Saturday, October 1st, to remember Chris and to celebrate his life.

Following a battle with cancer, Chris, a notable naturalist and environmentalist, passed away peacefully at Renfrew Hospice near his home of Golden Lake, Ontario, leaving behind life partner Jean Brereton, stepdaughter Tara Smock, grandchildren Theo and Lee, brothers Bob, Tony and Ted and sister Sally, extended family and literally hundreds of devoted friends.

The itinerary for Saturday, October 1st is as follows:
- 2:00 Graveside memories and internment of ashes at Michener Plot, Mount Pleasant Cemetery (plot V; see map, below) immediately followed by a Reception and Presentations at Yorkminster Baptist Church just around the corner at the intersection of Health & Yonge Streets MAP (Yorkminster has a parking lot).
- 4:30 For those who wish, we will be moving to restaurant nearby for further refreshments and memories.
