Why Do We Love Thorndale?
Before the 1850s, the present site of the Village of Thorndale was a dense property full of nature and wilderness. The name "Thorndale" was chosen for the village because of the importance of the Shanly family. In 1858, the Grand Trunk, the station and rail freight sheds arrived. After that, the village of Thorndale was placed on the map! The village of Thorndale is rooted in history, growing for tomorrow.
Our Thorndale mural is located on the east wall of the feed mill. The mural has become a Thorndale landmark marking the significant role the rail system played in early development and growth of Thorndale, as well as being the community’s lifeline.
KNS Martial Arts goal is to provide basic through intermediate karate technique classes to the whole family in Thorndale. Thorndale is at the heart of our community and business.
"Our Martial Arts program is something we take great pride in. Our program is not only teaching the art of our style but we also work on becoming and contributing to being better people. Joining I Love Thorndale is helping us achieve these goals. We have been a part of I Love Thorndale for sometime now and couldn't be happier. The work and effort that is put into I Love Thorndale is astonishing. We are very proud to be part of the community and all it represents. We have met some amazing people both children and adults and hope to meet more. We thank I Love Thorndale for allowing us to participate in their amazing community."
