Long Description:
The Glenn Community Center is a non-profit organization, organized in the community to promote activities which are recreational, charitable, and educational in purpose.

The Glenn Community Center is proud to host three Pancake Breakfasts every summer to celebrate our local Glenn History as the Pancake Town. We also organize an annual Holiday Market and Winter Market to bring local vendors and shoppers together. These markets take place on Saturdays in November, December, February, & March. This year The Glenn Community Center will take a closer look at Glenn History by hosting a small Glenn History mini series at the center. We are always looking for new volunteers and are appreciative of new ideas that come along with each new individual. 
Glenn – The Pancake Town
The community’s designation as “The Pancake Town” stems from a blizzard that took place on December 7, 1937, when the entire northeastern section of the United States was held in the grip of one of the nation’s worst snow storms. 
Motorists were forced to find shelter and take refuge anywhere they could find it. In the wake
of the storm, more than 200 motorists found themselves marooned in the small community
of Glenn, located off, I-196, Exit 30, between Saugatuck and South Haven.
Feeding that many people quickly led to dwindling grocery supplies. However, almost everyone in the area had ingredients necessary to prepare pancakes. The golden griddlecakes soon became breakfast, lunch, and dinner for everyone in town.
