October 16, 2011

GREENSBORO - After 57 years of welcoming guests through its doors, the Smith family has decided to close the Highland Lodge. A combination of factors brought the family to this decision, and they are not the only ones.

Owners Jocelyn Bourassa and Cinta Aherns took the shop over from Northeast Kingdom Community Action last August. The women bring their own established product lines to the business.
“We do pretty much anything,” said Bourassa. “If you think it, we can make it.”
