On my last visit to the Vineyard, in September, I was shocked at the condition of the Mayhew Chapel in Christiantown: windows broken, exterior shingles rotting, bird droppings on benches inside, weeds taking over the burial ground.

My question is: Does anyone have a plan for repairs? I have been told repairs are usually done with a government grant, but if there is none, why couldn’t a handyman with a few hundred dollars shore the place up?
