The Town of Hanley has set up a fund where you can donate to Darryl & Shirley Grindheim after they lost everything in their house fire on June 25. You can donate to the Town of Hanley by Debit, Credit Card or cheque with a memo to Grindheims or e-transfer email@example.com with the security question: “How can I help Grindheims” with the answer “Grindheim”. Mailing address for the Town of Hanley, Box 270, Hanley, SK S0G 2E0. Charitable donation receipts will be provided.
Last night the Grindheim family suffered a tragedy with the loss of their home and all belongings. My son Tyler sat with Josh while the firefighters and townspeople did everything to help. Tyler has decided he wants to help too. Many of you know or have seen Tyler around town and in the ditches picking cans for years now (he is only 7). We have a load of cans to take in now and Tyler wants to donate all the money to Josh and his family. If anybody has cans or bottles to donate Tyler will happily pick them up.
PROVINCIAL FIRE BAN LIFTED
With rainfall in many areas, the ban on open fires for all provincial Crown land south of the Churchill River, including provincial parks, has now been lifted. The ban was put in place on May 14. There are now no active provincial fire bans in Saskatchewan.
Campfire restrictions may be put in place for specific provincial parks and recreation sites, based on local conditions. More information can be found at Tourism Saskatchewan.
Municipalities, regional and national parks may also ban open burning in their areas of responsibility. You can view a list of municipal fire bans and check with your local authority to find out if there are burning restrictions in place for your area or where you plan to travel.
The fire ban for Prince Albert National Park has been lifted.
As of June 13th, 2018, there still is a ‘Fire Ban’ in effect for areas around Hanley (the Town of Hanley, RM of Rosedale, Resort Village of Shields and Resort Village of Thode).
