Other Events and Notes of Interest


Presents the video “Kilauea: Mountain of Fire” on Friday, April 17, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Kilauea, on Hawaii's Big Island, is the world's most active volcano. Its latest eruption began in 1983 and it hasn't stopped since. Since that time, it has created 544 acres of new land and has consumed 200 homes. But Kilauea is also the driving force in a spectacular process of creation -- the cataclysmic meeting of 2,000-degree lava and 75-degree ocean water. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.


Presents the video “Why We Love Cats and Dogs” on Friday, April 24, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Americans own 73 million dogs and 90 million cats. They become best friends, soul mates, family members -- even surrogate children. Relationships with cats and dogs are some of the longest and most intimate of our lives. Why are we so attached? Animal behavior experts, evolutionary biologists, veterinarians, and pet owners share insights and observations about these animals and their impact on us. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.


Will be celebrating its 10th Biennial Model Boat Show on April 18 & 19. Scale models will be exhibited in seven buildings along Woods Hole’s main street and others will be in the water at two locations. Races of radio controlled sail boats will be held in Eel Pond. A pool is built on the museum lawn for kids to sail boats, which they build from simple kits. All types and sizes of models are exhibited in the show. Some of the models are so small they will fit into a light bulb; others are as big as 12’ long. Some are classic historic craft, some military and Coast Guard vessels, others are the latest in fast-boat and sail design; a few perfect little vessels are in bottles. Some are static, others radio-controlled. A few are actually steam powered. A series of illustrated talks will be presented as part of this show. Tickets, which are good for both days, are $12 for adults, $5 for kids, or $25 maximum for nuclear families. Tickets will be available at the museum at 579 Woods Hole Road and the Woods Hole Community Hall on Water Street adjacent to the drawbridge. Anyone with questions should either call the museum at (508) 548-7270 or visit the website www.woodsholemuseum.org. Anyone who has ever been tempted to attend should come this year to be sure to be part of this celebration of boats built on a small scale.


On Monday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m., and also at 3:30 p.m., on Thursday, April 30, the library will host two discussions about the book Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard, by Laura Bates, Ph.D.  The discussions will be led by Prosser Gifford, President of the library’s Board of Trustees, and Robert Pelletreau, retired to Woods Hole, and also on the library’s Board of Trustees, presently serving as Vice President. The Falmouth Reads Together Committee selected Shakespeare Saved My Life by Laura Bates, Ph.D., as the town wide reading selection for 2015. Bob and Pross will lead both the groups together adding their two points of view.  The discussion will focus on the book itself rather than any additional reading of Shakespeare. All participants are encouraged to read the book beforehand. Many copies of Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard are available for check-out at every library branch in Falmouth, as well as several e-copies. Any questions may be directed to the library at (508) 548-8961 or the website www.woodsholepublbiclibrary.org.
