Herma’s News – Silent Auctions in September, Labour Day and NEW Uno de 50 Jewelry

Every particular in nature – a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time – is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Stunning chandeliers and beautiful table setting will create a magical atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy a deliciously memorable meal.

The Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre

We believe Cornerstone deserves great recognition for what they do within our community as they attempt to break the cycle of family violence by providing immediate shelter and prevention services for women and their children who are escaping abuse.

This safe haven allows women who have experienced abuse to plan for the next steps they will take within their lives. Cornerstone’s coordinated care approach connects women with counsellors, housing and family support workers.

Stay tuned! Next week’s Silent Auction item will be announced within our next newsletter.

NEW Arrival – UNO de 50 Jewelry

Herma just received a new collection of UNO de 50’s Jewelry from Madrid. Come see for yourself!

Cheese Department

Our glorious summer is coming to a close and we know there will be lots of celebrating to be had. Be sure to stop at Herma’s for lovely cheeses, fine Italian meats and all sorts of snacks that will be perfect for entertaining guests.

While you’re at it, you may want to pick up unique gourmet foods that would be fabulous for back to school lunches and snacks. And don’t forget The Village Kitchen frozen meals which are perfect for university students.

Featured Cheese

Le Roitelet Brie

This lovely brie from France with mild tangy flavour and white velvet rind is decadently creamy. We love the taste and its special savings too.
