Rotary at 11 am at Kitsap Mall on October 10 - The Virtual Reality Experience. 
 
Bring guests!  See how Rotary and science are harnessing the immersive power of virtual reality to create a more connected world.  The lunch and official meeting are at our regular time. However, the VR experience will be set up next to Dick's Sporting Goods starting at 11 am so that anyone who wants can come early to experience the event before the lunch.  Please see map below.
