Mardi gras party in church? Makes sense, doesn’t it, since the revelry prefaces Lent, after all. It made enough sense to a few dozen members of the West Tisbury Congregational Church who weren’t about to let the second most important (after election day) Tuesday of the year go by unnoticed and uncelebrated.
