Michael Rice

Michael came to Albany for work at the NYS Legislature in 1986 and joined HWFC soon thereafter (the record of which was later lost).  By the time of his retirement he shamefully took advantage of the senior discount until he finally joined anew about five years ago.  A lifelong Peace and Justice activist, he participated in a sit-in in the Mayor’s Office while a senior in High School in 1946 to (successfully) integrate the public parks in Louisville, KY.  A life-long organic gardener and farmer, he helps his daughter Rebekah operate the Nine Mile Farm and CSA and takes care of the sheep and chickens and digs preparing the copious vegetable beds.
