Fairlee Diner closure is only temporary

FAIRLEE—The dusty parking lot next to a one-story building beneath the Palisades has been empty for a month.
But, hopefully, not for too much longer. As the overcast days of April finally parted, Mother’s Day opened up a glimmer of hope for the Fairlee Diner.
Janice Neil of West Topsham posted that it was “a great one” for her on Facebook with a picture of herself standing beneath the Fairlee Diner sign holding her own handwritten message that reads “Coming in June!!” with “Jan’s” replacing “the Gilman’s” in the picture.
