The Reston Historic Trust & Museum Presents:
Saturday April 6, 2019

Lake Anne Plaza

Join the Reston Historic Trust & Museum (RHT) as it celebrates Founder’s Day on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Remember founder Robert E. Simon Jr. and celebrate the 55th anniversary of Reston with a full slate of family-friendly activities at Lake Anne Plaza.

Founder’s Day will feature children’s activities, including a moon bounce sponsored by Reston Association. Musical entertainment for all ages will be provided by local artists and schools throughout the day. Jeff Morgan will lead a Bob Simon Says game at multiple times of the day. Popcorn and cotton candy will be sold by Reston Association throughout the event.

There will also be a guided public art tour around Lake Anne. Visitors are invited to attend an artist talk with Marco Rando, who will discuss his artwork and how Reston has impacted his creative journey. The talk will take place in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery Reston Community Center Lake Anne. Both activities are sponsored by Public Art Reston. Stop by Reston Community Center Lake Anne and preserve your memories of Reston by participating in a workshop led by several of the authors of the book Memoir Your Way or recording your Reston memories with NPR’s Storycorps program.
