Previous Patch Pals of the Month

Patch Pal of October 2016Sara Maugere

Sara Maugere is a Tampa native who spends much of her time bouncing between Tampa and St. Pete. Sara originally came to The Blueberry Patch a few years ago but began calling it home when she started attending events regularly since January of this year. She is one of the first to walk through the door on a Patch night and can almost always be seen working the 7 o’clock shift volunteering at the door. She has proven to be a consistent and reliable member of our Patch family and for that, we have asked her to act as our vendor liaison!

Sara is incredibly talented and fluent when it comes to her understanding of sign language. You can occasionally see her on stage during our Open Mic events, turning words into beautiful performances by interpreting lyrics as sign language. Sara supports local music and is beloved by many of the bands and artists.

Sara, you are a wonderful gift to the Blueberry Patch. Thank you for your dedication to our community and we are thankful for all that you do!

Peace, Love & Blueberries!

Patch Pal of September 2016Dustin “Link” Trimmer

“Be the change you want to see.“

A recent transplant from Columbus, Ohio, Link moved to Florida a little over one year ago. Through word of mouth, he and his girlfriend Kari Fremont found The Blueberry Patch and have been regulars ever since. Link can be seen volunteering at the door, heavy lifting on Volunteer Saturday’s and has even been seen playing guitar during our Open Mic!

Outside of the Patch, Link created “Link’s Tri-Force Thursday’s”, which is a volunteer effort to help preserve the Tri-Force (WISDOM, POWER, & COURAGE) by cleaning our beaches and parks. He is also instrumental in assisting Greenpeace & The Everyday Hero Project in organizing the event “Jammin for the Planet” on Saturday, September 3rd, 11am-3pm in downtown St. Pete at Williams Park. We are so proud of his involvement and love for the environment.

Link has also stepped forward to organize our fire safety plan for the 14th Annual Burning Blueberry Brother on November 19th at the Blueberry Patch. We are beyond thrilled that both he and Kari have joined the Blueberry Patch family! Thank you for all that you do!
