Minnie Dole Award Recipients

The Minnie Dole Award is one of NSP’s most rarely given awards, which “recognizes those exceptional few patrollers who, over the year, have closely exemplified the long-term dedication, devotion, and self sacrifice of the founder of the NSP, Charles Minot ‘Minnie’ Dole.”

Since the first Minnie Dole Award was given in 1969 to Winter Park patroller Charles Sauer, only 27 more have been given.
