The Reston Historic Trust and Museum will host a panel tonight exploring whether Reston is living up to founder Bob Simon’s goal of being a diverse place.

The panel of speakers will include residents who have lived in Reston for different periods of time. Panelists are Beverly Cosham, Victoria Cosham-Rivera, Omer Gorashi, Gerald Zavala and Anthony Zavala.

The event is free and will run from 7-9 p.m. at the JoAnn Rose Gallery at the Reston Community Center Lake Anne.

One of Simon’s goals was to ensure individual dignity was the focal point of all planning.

“We are interested in not only the experiences of the early pioneers, but also the experiences of those who grew up in Reston, those who came later and their children’s experiences, and the impressions and experiences of those who are the more recent members of our community,” organizers said in an Facebook event page.

    The canonization of St Simon continues
    Any reports of miracles ?

      Yes, the glas coffin was cooled by RELAC for the past few months without incident. The next miracle will arise when the mausoleum will be opened to the public.

      • Why do you bother?

    I don’t know about diversity, but it sure as heck hasn’t lived up to it’s mission of being a planned community. Reston has been raped by Cathy Hudgins. Are Reston residents blind to this? If they don’t act soon and toss her out, they deserve what they get.
