Welcome to “5 Things,” your daily resource for community events, happenings in town and other little tidbits of information. Here are five things you need to know on Tuesday, Jan. 15.
1. Thaw: The January thaw is over and temperatures return to more typical wintertime temperatures on Tuesday. The sky will eventually be sunny with a high temperature of about 40 degrees.
2. Clutter: Is clutter taking over your life? Need some tips to declutter? Get some help on Tuesday from the North Shore Elder Services. A 10-week series starts on Tuesday and is open to all ages. The group meets at 10 a.m. at 152 Sylvan St. and the fee is based on a sliding scale.
3. Casinos: Tuesday is the deadline for companies interested in building a resort casino in the state to submit a deposit.
