Thanks to the First Congregational Church of West Tisbury, the weekly suppers they host are another way the community can make it through the Island winter. Last Wednesday, folks gathered at the church, next to Alley's General Store, and feasted with fellow Islanders. Though in the past the dinners have been potluck-style, you only need to bring food if you wish. They are held every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7.

KP duty for the Rev. Roger Spinney at last weekend's pulled pork dinner.

Pastor Roger Spinney loves to cook. It's a good thing he does because the popular suppers at the First Baptist Church in Vineyard Haven are not only delicious but a good way to raise funds for the newly restored church.
