On Wednesday April 5, 2017, to help celebrate Bruce County's 150th, the Friends of the Port Elgin Branch Library will be hosting an event with Ken Thornburn presenting his artistic views of rural and historical images of Bruce and Grey County.

Thornburn will also be donating an historical sketch of the Port Elgin library which will be placed on display at the library.

Thornburn has created colouring books for both adults and children which illustrate historical pictures and stories of Bruce and Grey Count and has also created a commemorative colouring book to celebrate the 150th Birthday of Bruce County.

Originally from Port Elgin, Thornburn lives in Toronto for 20 years and, after graduating from Sheridan College in Graphic Design & Technical Animation, he became the animation technician at the Ontario College of Art and Feature Films.

Thornburn moved to Tara in 1991 where he opened Northern Flyer Designs and Promotions.  He continues to produce rural and historical pencil drawings and creates cartoons for books. T-shirt designs and commissioned drawings.
