Dots of Vermont during Hurricane Irene Flood
Donate Here!


Dots Restaurant in Wilmington, Vermont was Severely Damaged on August 28, 2011 by Tropical Storm IRENE.

Dot's is a Family Style Restaurant that has served countless Locals, Vacationers, Second home Owners, and Tourists for Decades. Over the past few months we have been working very hard with Business Advisors, Structural Engineers, The Preservation Trust of Vermont, and Contractors to come up with a Plan to save Dots. With The Plan for Restoration and Flood proofing basically set it is time to ask for help from our Community, Our Friends, and Community Based Fund Raising Sources.

Site Plan

We have chosen this path to Rebuild Dot's as a way to preserve the Heart of Wilmington, Preserve past memories, and the opportunity for future generations to have the Dots experience. We look at this as more of a Stewardship than ownership, in helping to keep the traditions for many, many people alive.

How you can help..

With that said The Preservation Trust of Vermont is helping to raise funds to support Rebulding Dots. Two of the primary goals of the Preservation Trust are to help build stronger village centers and downtowns, and support important community gathering places like Dots. Please this link to the Trust's web site to make a tax deductible contribution specifically for Rebuilding Dots.

Additionally, Friends of the Valley Foundation is holding a raffle with all proceeds going to Dot's! Please visit their website at for information on a Memorial Day Weekend fundraiser for Dots & for purchasing raffle tickets.

Volunteers and Building Materials...

We would also be looking for donations of building materials such as lumber, paint and flooring. We also in certain instances would be looking for Volunteers in our mission to rebuild. Please contact us directly or on Facebook at Dots of Vermont. We will also be holding local fundraising events that we hope the local and second homeowner community will participate in.

We certainly would appreciate any help we receive and believe it will be helping the Whole Community.

Thank You and we miss you all.

John and Patty Reagan.
