5 Things You Need to Know Today, 10/9

A good day to do something fun indoors.

1) Rainy all day, with patchy fog in the morning, and strong winds, gusting up to 30 miles per hour. Temperatures will be in the mid to high 50s. The rain will likely continue overnight, with temperatures in the low to mid 50s.

2) The Falmouth Arts Center hosts its new exhibit, The Art of Clay: Function and Beyond, in its Main Gallery, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check out plates, vases, and other clay creations by nearly 20 local artists. Admission is free. For more information, call (508) 540-3304, or visit http://www.falmouthart.org.

3) The Woods Hole Women's Club will meet at the Church of the Messiah at 11:30 a.m. for a brown-bag luncheon. Beth Colt, owner and restorer of the Woods Hole Inn, will be on hand to discuss the history of the building, and her progress in renovating it. A tour of the inn will follow the discussion. The talk is open to the public, and new members are always welcome. For more information, call (508) 299-8330.

4) Member of the Falmouth Genealogical Society will be on hand at the Falmouth Library to offer help to those researching their family trees. The experts will help any interested parties track down their elusive ancestors, today and every Tuesday, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the library's Lemcke Reference Room. There is no charge.

5) This day in history: Roger Williams, eventual founder of Rhode Island, is banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for advocating religious and ethnic tolerance (1635); John Lennon I born (1940); and Afghan citizens vote in the nation's first democratic elections (2004).
