Thank heaven for Grace Church and its rite of summertime: lobster rolls. This Friday, May 16, opens the lobster roll season. The volunteer culinary crew makes the rolls fresh each Friday through September and sells them to the hungry masses from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

If you aren’t a lobster lover, there are hot dogs and pies to make you happy. Patrons can dine in or take out. Lobster rolls are $17 and funds raised support the church’s charitable giving. Grace Church is on Woodlawn avenue just off Main street in Vineyard Haven.

Reserve your lobster roll by calling 508-693-0332.
