Cap'n Nemo's Fire Fund

As you may or may not know, the iconic Cap'n Nemos located in Bass Harbor, ME owned and operated by the Cousin's family tragically burned down on December 4th, 2013. Not only was this their business that put food on their table, but it was their home as well.
And in one night, it's all gone.

Everyone has been touched by this family or establishment in one way or another. Whether it be watching one of the kids play basketball, gathering for an ugly sweater party, singing your heart out at karaoke, having one of their "Sex in the Woods", sitting by the fire, or just listening to the hundreds of stories they had to offer, the Cousin's have truly had a huge impact on the community.

Nemo's was no ordinary community bar: this eccentric place of gathering was a place for the locals. Whether or not you were considered a "regular", anyone who walked through the back or front entrance was welcomed with open arms and a hearty "cheers!".
The stove was always hot, and the drinks always strong. The people always welcoming and the food always good.

With tragedy can come uplifting. Now is the time for us to pull together as a community. We pride ourselves for helping our "neighbor's brother's sister in-law's cousin that is twice removed" if they are in a bind and need a tow, or to borrow your truck if they need help moving, or maybe simple just lending them a boiler so they can put on a lobster bake by the ocean. So how about we reach into our pockets, no matter how shallow or deep they may be and try and find a way to give back to a family that has given back to us. No matter how direct or indirectly they may have impacted your life, this family is part of our community and this tragic accident could not have come at a worse time. It's December in Maine and the whether isn't expected to get any warmer...

Cap'n Nemo's did not have fire insurance. Not only do they need physical donations of clothing, blankets, food, etc... they need monetary donations to assist them in getting back on their feet. Rebuilding their HOME and keeping a roof over their heads this winter.

Tis the season. Please join me in reconsidering your "budget" for this holiday season and consider putting aside some of the money for all those gifts of things many people just "want" and don't truly "need" and instead putting it into the hands of a family that needs us.
