AMVETS Auxiliary Members

Welcome to your new page for the
AMVETS Auxiliary at Post 176, Richfield, Ohio!

Greetings from the Auxiliary President

Welcome to AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary Post 176

As your new President of the Ladies Auxiliary, I am thrilled to be able to serve you and our veterans here at post 176 and in our community.  We hope to expand our membership this year and keep doing the wonderful things our Past Local (PLP) President Gayla Clark has accomplished over her 12 years of service at Post 176!  She did an amazing job and I have very big shoes to fill!

Our general membership meeting is on the first Wednesday of the month – September through June.  I encourage you to attend the meeting to hear what we are doing to help our Veterans and our communities.  One way we help here is to find volunteers for our post events!  Whether it be to help with the Turkey Shoot (AMVETS), Richfield Annual Steak Fry (Sons of AMVETS) or the Gy Sgt Robert Gilbert Memorial Poker Run (AMVET Riders) we are always willing to serve!

September starts our annual renewal of our memberships and membership drive!  If you know someone who loves to serve Veterans and their community, I encourage you to bring them to our post and join our organization.  Dues to the Ladies Auxiliary are $30.00 per year.  This allows you to participate in Club events and the Auxiliary fosters kindness, friendship and consideration to others.  We have a very special group of Ladies in our Auxiliary and they would like to welcome you with open arms.

Here to serve you for the 2022-2023 year are:

Kelly Clark

1st Vice President/Membership                   
Crystal Shirkman

2nd Vice President/Child Welfare              
Linda Greenleaf

3rd Vice President/Community Service
Debbie McGown

Rita McCallister

Jane McDonough

Stacy Sadar

Scholarship Chairman                                 
Cathy Denissoff

Megan McCallister

Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions about our organization. 

Again, I look forward to serving you.

Kind Regards,

Madam President, Kelly Elliott Clark
