TO THE TOWNSHIP OF JAMES (Elk Lake)
The Jack Munroe Historical Society of Elk City was founded in 2009. Jack Munroe was a professional boxer, municipal leader, prospector, war hero; and author.
The founder of Elk City inspired one of the greatest legends of the early 20th Century Canadian mining and one who cannot be forgotten.
His namesake Society, through the creation of the Order of the North, is determined to perpetuate the memory of this great Canadian for future generations!
The Elk Lake Community Garden created in 2016 is a partnership between local organizations to promote healthy living. This was an opportunity to learn how to grow and harvest vegetables. All the beds are planted by the community and school families.
All local produce grown will be used in a FREE community celebration dinner in the fall.
