Legion Wall of Honour

The Richmond Legion promotes and encourages SCHS students to participate in our programs and activities:

The Legion Remembrance Day Poster and Literary Contests. Takes place every November. Cash prizes for 1st , 2nd and 3rd place. Contest details will be available in your school. Be a part of Remembrance Week this year.

Get your name on The Legion Volunteer Roster. The Poppy Drive is October 27, Saturday morning. Your Legion veterans and Legion members could certainly use your help with the door-to- door campaign.

Students can also get their Community Service Hours at the Richmond Legion. Be it a Sunday afternoon Seniors Dinner, a Dinner-Dance, or a BBQ, kitchen help is always appreciated. Join our Volunteers this year.

The Richmond Legion provides Bursaries of $1000.00 from the Poppy Fund. Candidates must live within the Richmond Legion boundary, and have a family affiliation with the Armed Forces or Legion members. Applications are available in the Guidance Office.

A Public-speaking Contest is held in early March. This is your chance to speak out on your topic, and develop your leadership skills. 

The Richmond Legion can give you personal accounts of veterans from WWII, the Korean War, and modern-day conflicts. Consider the Legion as a resource to learn about history, first-hand.

For more information about the Richmond Legion, visit their website or contact Youth Officer Elizabeth Douville, or 613-838-6078.
