Harry and Herma

Dear Customers,

We have so much to be thankful for and it is at this time that we like to meditate on all the many blessings we experience on a daily basis – delicious foods, spending time with friends and family, and living in a peaceful country are just a few.

Your patronage and friendship are also amongst those blessings for which we are truly grateful. Please let us help you prepare for your celebration anyway we can.

From all of us at Herma’s, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Back – Silent Auction Results

It is also at this time of Thanksgiving that we feel it is important to consider those that are not so fortunate. That being said, it has been a privilege to sponsor a silent auction for the Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre. Last month we were able to raise $1450.00.

We would like to thank all those that participated in the silent auction – Ste. Anne’s Spa and ZimArt for providing items for bid and also to our high bidders who are listed below. Your contribution will support families that are experiencing upheaval and trauma.

Week #1 Illya and Debbie Roumeliotis – Dinner for Six in Herma’s Studio

Week #2 Marsha Jones ZimArt Statue, My First Born by Boet Nyariri

Week #3 Renee McLachlan – Cheese & Charcuterie Tray from Herma’s

Week #4 Catherine TaylorSte. Anne’s All-Inclusive Day Spa

Of course the giving doesn’t have to stop here.

If you are interested in helping to break the cycle of family violence through Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre be sure to visit

Hostess Gift – Wrapped Cheese

Giving gifts of appreciation are a lovely way to show your host or hostess just how much you are thankful for all their hard work. At Herma’s we have all sorts of ideas to inspire for Thanksgiving including…

Fraktals Chocolates – Godiva Chocolates – Shortbread Cookies  – Olive Oil – Preserves – Cheese – Lotions – Soaps – Aprons – Candles – and so much more

Herma recommends giving a gift basket.

Gift Baskets may be created specifically for the holiday. Ask Gordon or Herma for assistance in creating your basket.

We also have several gift baskets that are already wrapped and ready for purchase.

Cathy recommends…

Place a large piece of parmesan cheese and cheese shredder on top of a small cheese board. Have them wrapped as a gift basket. Voila. A beautiful gift!.

Of course other cheeses would do nicely as well. We have a beautiful selection from which to choose.

Gordon recommends…

Gordon is always amazing us with his ability to wrap gifts and his wrapped gift certificates are no exception. No need to make decisions about gift buying. They are all ready to go!

Cheese Trays

Cheese and Charcuterie Platters for your family get together this weekend may still be ordered. Just call 905-885-9250 or stop by. 36 hours notice is much appreciated.

Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving full of laughter with friends and family, gratitude for your many blessings and the making of joyful memories.
