At its January 16th annual meeting, members of the Reston Historic Trust welcomed its newest Board Officers and members and saluted out-going Chair, Shelley Mastran. Convening at the Museum at Lake Anne, the Board and friends of the Trust gathered to hear Ms. Mastran deliver her last “State of the Trust” overview for 2018 before relinquishing the Chair’s gavel. All attending were unanimous in their grateful recognition of her 8-year service to the Board. A new Chair (Carolyn Flitcroft), Vice-Chair (Kristina Alcorn) and Secretary (Bonnie Haukness) were nominated and named, having all previously served on the Board, and three new members, Kim Casson, Suzanne Zurn and Charlotte Geary were warmly welcomed. Business completed, members and guests wrapped up their evening with the chance to “meet and greet” at the after-reception.
The Trust is a community-based non-profit organization formed to sustain the unique history of the award-winning, planned community of Reston and sponsors Founder’s Day every April and operates the Reston Museum & Shop on Washington Plaza in the historic Lake Anne Village Center.
With a full-time director, small staff, and team of resident docents, the Trust offers year-round community exhibits and archives, walking tours, children’s art workshops, lecture series, an annual Home Tour, and public events that strive to make history both fun and relevant. The museum also offers original art, crafts, and Reston signature items for sale.
