Restaurants, an inn and businesses are reopening, and renovations have been completed on a badly flooded church.
Most importantly, the heart of this southern Vermont community, Dot's Restaurant, is being rebuilt. Owners John and Patty Reagan hope to reopen in November.
On Tuesday, a crane is scheduled to lift the building that dates to 1832 off its foundation. The owners plan to raise the foundation and make other changes to flood-proof the building.
The entire project is expected to cost $800,000, and the Reagans are taking out a loan and need to raise $275,000 to get the renovations done.
