Join the Reston Historic Trust & Museum on Wednesday, September 20th at 7:00 pm for a fantastic presentation by Chuck Veatch and Kristina Alcorn. “Meant to Be: How Reston Almost Wasn’t” will delve into the chain of improbable events and the forks in the road that paved the way for the creation of Reston.
Chuck Veatch was a part of Reston’s original development team. He is a Best of Reston and Robert E. Simon, Jr. Community Service Award winner. Chuck is also a photographer and publisher of the book, The Nature of Reston. He is member of the Reston Historic Trust’s Board of Directors, a trustee for the Endowment for The National Wildlife Federation, past chair and current member of the Board of Trustees at Shenandoah University, and Real Estate Fellow at The University of Virginia.
Kristina Alcorn is a (nearly) lifelong resident of Reston and 1986 graduate of South Lakes High School. After receiving degrees in English and Spanish from Longwood University, Kristina worked in environmental consulting and business development for a large government contractor. Kristina left the business world in 2015 to focus on writing. She recently published two books, “In His Own Words: Stories from the Extraordinary Life of Reston’s Founder, Robert E. Simon Jr” and “Myths and Monsters of Reston, Virginia.” Kristina also serves on the Reston Historic Trust’s Board of Directors.
The program will be held in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center Lake Anne and is FREE to the public.
