Southwest Harbor has a Coast Guard Station and we all know that Coast Guard men and women are working without pay during the partial government shutdown. In fact, the Coast Guard is the only branch of the military not receiving pay. That's why I am so pleased to share the message I received Sunday night.

Silent City Coffee located at 12B Village Green Way in Southwest Harbor will be offering a free breakfast to all government employees impacted by the partial government shutdown. Just show them your ID when placing your order.
