Given any usual wintry Saturday night on Martha’s Vineyard and you might be inclined to think most islanders would be cozied up in front of a roaring fire with a good book or a movie. But around once a month you will find a good many winter residents of all ages at the Chilmark Community Center, which is transformed into a coffee house style music venue by Alex Karalekas and his team of volunteers. You usually only find out about these kind of casual winter events in typical Vineyard fashion via Facebook or word of mouth!
Winter on Martha's Vineyard
Tea Lane Associates is proud to sponsor this Community Arts Project - the "Covid Monologues MV: Readings to Nourish, Inspire & Connect" book to be launched this December.
Dozens of collaborators, from the Martha’s Vineyard community, including one of our own Tea Lane brokers, took pen to paper to write about the pandemic in a year and a half-long project that was the brainchild of two island residents during the initial lock down.

A huge sign created by Monique from “Card My Yard” greeted everyone in the dark, with words of encouragement and friendly reminder to “beat Nantucket”.
