On November 10, APS hosted a reception at its headquarters in College Park for Fellows residing in the DC region. In addition to refreshments and plenty of opportunity to mingle, Fellows were treated to a short program featuring presentations by APS President Cherry Murray, Executive Officer Kate Kirby, Editor-in-Chief Gene Sprouse, and Director of Public Affairs Michael Lubell. At the end of the program, in honor of the LaserFest celebration that will take place in 2010, a surprise appearance was made by Laser Superhero Spectra, who is featured in this year's PhysicsQuest program for middle school students, and is the star of an accompanying comic book.
