#PrayForLydia Kitchener Market Hockeyfest Contest and more Things To Do in Kitchener Waterloo


As many of you know I often talk about what a wonderful gem Herrles Market is in our community. When young Lydia Herrle was involved in the Erb Rd accident last week and rushed to Sick Kids hospital, a community came together to support the Herrle Family.
For updates from the family you can follow their twitter feed!/herrlesmarket
I've also set up a page with updates on facebook  For those not fully aware of why there are Lime Green Ribbons all over Waterloo Region, I've posted a lot of info here
Please continue to keep Lydia Herrle in your thoughts and prayers.
