Hayin’ in the 30’s Tools Stolen

A local cancer support organization, Hayin’ in the 30’s has fallen victim to a break and enter. On June 9th, one of the volunteers for the organization, which hosts its annual fundraiser on May Long Weekend, went to check in on a storage trailer.

The volunteer noted that the trailer’s lock had been busted and tools were stolen. Many of the tools were vital to the success of the event, which raises money for cancer patients in the Lakeland. Many of the tools were owned or donated by local volunteers.  Despite the theft, the two-event will go, confirms the non-profit organization.

Haying in the 30’s helps on average a person a day with the proceeds they raise every August long weekend in Mallaig, AB. Last year’s benefit was held August 1st & 2nd and brought in over $230,000 that will go towards helping cancer patients in the area manage the excess cost of treatment, such as travelling and accommodations for family members while undergoing treatment. The organization aims to give something to everyone and accepts applications all year long for people in need. We help people all year round.


Anyone with information regarding the theft of the tools is asked to contact the St. Paul RCMP Detachment or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
