2016 Devil Pup Awards Night

2015 Graduates at Awards Night

Please remember our Devil Pup Awards Night program on Friday evening, September 23rd.  This year it will be held at the Southern Utah Veterans Home in Ivins, where Col. Toole is currently residing.  We will have food catered by Brick Oven in the Multi-Purpose Room, where we will also have an award ceremony for Col. Toole as he retires from Devil Pups.  Rich Linsday, President of Devil Pups, Inc. and  Col. Ray Blum, Devil Pups trustee and past Encampment Commander, both long time friends of Col. Toole, will attend, as will Heather Ham, Devil Pups, Inc. coordinator.  We are looking forward to honoring our seven new graduates and celebrating Col. Toole’s nearly 40 years of volunteer service to the Devil Pup program.

Doors open at 6:00, food at 6:30, program to begin at 7:00.  Please be aware that Col. Toole has had a couple small strokes and is suffering from dementia.  He may be overwhelmed by this evening - a program that he’s poured his heart and soul into for so many years.  I will bring him to the event at 7:00 for the program.

Devil Pups:  Wear your Devil Pup uniform as above in the photo.

Please send me an e-mail if you plan to attend, letting me know how many will be in your party.  I want to make sure you don’t leave hungry.  Thanks to all of you - let me know if you have questions.
