                                   Dear Friends
                                   Thank you all for the generous support you’ve given the RMSC over
                                   the year. A few highlights of all that we have accomplished together are
                                   shared below.
                                   We began 2010 by holding Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition for an additional week in January to extend the experi-
                                   ence to as many visitors as possible. In total, the exhibition drew more than 68,000 guests and generated over
                                   $700,000 in tourism revenue for Rochester and Monroe County. This fall’s blockbuster CSI: The Experience is
                                   now drawing crowds exploring the excitement of hands-on forensic science. We are thrilled to bring spectacular
                                   experiences like this to Rochester, thanks to support from our members and donors, corporate sponsors, and state

                                   With deep commitment to our neighborhood and the greater Rochester community, we have been working closely
                                   with the ARTWalk Extension Project team and community members to develop plans to redesign the central plaza

                                   you all, and I invite you to come celebrate with us during the upcoming holiday season.
                                   We made a festive start with the Women’s Council’s 40th Annual Holiday Bazaar in November, a wonderful event
                                   that produces vital funding for the RMSC each year, thanks to weeks of work by dedicated volunteers. In the weeks
                                   ahead you’ll find many more opportunities to come share the holidays at the RMSC. Experience Holiday Laser 2010

                                      him the design of an original interactive computer game that
                                      would give visitors a first-hand experience of how natural

                                      “Justin created one of the best and most entertaining in-

                                      couldn’t be more pleased.” Likewise, Justin is thrilled with

                                      and say ‘I did that!’” he notes. “I feel very
                                      fortunate to have had this opportunity to
                                      learn and gain professional experience
