The Silver Spring Science Fiction Society (SSSFS) held its 25th anniversary meeting October 27 at the Golden Bull in Adelphi, Maryland. The club, the third oldest in the Washington, D.C. area, was founded in October 1985 as a spinoff from the University of Maryland Science Fiction Society. It meets once a month at restaurants in the Montgomery County, Maryland area and occasionally they go to movies.
Founder Martin Morse Wooster was the only person present at the first meeting. He has missed about six of the 300 meetings held by the club.
The club welcomes dedicated sf and fantasy readers who live in the Washington,D.C. area. Call Martin Morse Wooster at 301/565-7820 for more information.
