The Richmond Hill Historical Society and Richmond Hill Legion are looking for your help. In particular, if you are aware of any Richmond Hill military links to the Wright, Dunlop and Palmer family names please let us know.

We are collecting a file on the history behind our street names, especially those with some historical contribution to the town, province or country, as well as those who served in the military and that should have a Poppy designation.

Please pass any information to Ross Toms, the Branch Historian of Richmond Hill Branch 375 of the Royal Canadian Legion. He can be reached at treasurer at or by phone (647) 224-1615.
