Tribute for Tony Bergmeier!"*~
The Christkindl Market is in it's 5th year...,
to overcome many obstacles, it was not always clear.
Community work done, with the best in town,
it all had to work, for the show to come around.
One person especially comes to our mind;
he worked endlessly, to succeed in time.
He's overseen all and took any blame,
a man with conviction and here is his name:
A humble man and just a little shy,
with a boyish smile, but a very keen eye.
At the market, he would be everywhere,
yet if you needed help, he was always right there.
Let us thank this man for all the work and his time!
It was so much more, than can be said in this rhyme.
Let us always remember in the future,
what he did for this show,
and how the "Christkindl Market"
got it's start long ago.
"Thank you Tony!"
For being a "big part, and the driving force"
in creating the City of Kitchener Christkindl Market.
