The annual appearance of daffodils dotting the Thornbury township landscape is always a welcome sign of spring, but more importantly, they let us know that it’s time for the Annual Pancake Breakfast at Glen Mills Schools in Glen Mills!
If you haven’t been to one of these breakfasts, you’re in for a treat. “It’s really more than pancakes,” according to Joan Dehm of the Thornbury Historical Society. Volunteers start at 6:30am making eggs, bacon, sausage and of course, pancakes. The pancake breakfast is a long-standing tradition in Thornbury. The Thornbury Historical Society has sponsored the event for 30 years this year. Joan herself, has been involved with the event since they served their first breakfast in 1986.
Depending on weather and other ongoing events, you can expect to see between 250 and 450 of your closest friends and neighbors at the breakfast. It’s a great time to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones.
This annual breakfast tradition, is an “All You Can Eat” from 8:00am to 10:30am, so come early and bring your appetite! But wait, there’s more…
150th Anniversary of the Civil War
This year commemorates the 150th anniversary of the U.S. Civil War. Historical re-enactors will attend the breakfast in authentic uniform. John Voris is coming as Abraham Lincoln’s personal secretary and there will be 2 collections of Civil War artifacts from The Sons of the Union Veterans as well as representatives from the 26th Regiment, PA Volunteer Infantry.
This is an excellent learning opportunity for kids and parents alike!
Come with your questions, curiosity and maybe even get a photo with a civil war soldier!

Volunteering: Trail Clearing on Lukenbach Trail
Place: Meet at the Cheyney Post Office
What better way to give back to the community than to help keep our parks and trails beautiful? The trail clearing event on the Lukenbach trail will be going on the same day, and some time overlapping the breakfast. So, get to the breakfast early so you can work it off!! Meet the Trails Committee at the Cheyney Train station to help clear fallen trees, branches and inspection the trail markings to ensure they are in good shape. They will be focusing on the section of trail from Station Road to Bonner Park.
This is a great way to get some fresh air and meet the neighbors. If you have a scout, this is also a great opportunity to earn some service hours!!
