Lakeside Pharmacy Icons Are Back At A New Location In Reston

Courtesy to Lake Anne of Reston Condominium Association, Reston Historic Trust & Museum (Trust) and the community effort of more than eighty people and businesses, the Pharmacy Icons are back at Lake Anne Plaza, spruced up, reinstalled at a new site in the breezeway and ready for another 50 years.

Cheryl Terio-Simon, the wife of the late Robert E. Simon, Founder of Reston, speaks during the Reinstallation Ceremony of the Lakeside Pharmacy Icons

Kurt Rose, the board member of the Trust, said before the dedication ceremony, “Preserving them was difficult, because they are made out of solid wood, and we wanted to refurbish them to their original state. It was going to cost more than $15,000 to refurbish and install”.

According to Reston Connection, “Dedication speaker Carolyn Flitcroft, chair of the Reston Historic Trust & Museum, told the assembled guests that the Icon Exhibit and Installation mirrored the museum’s mission, to sustain the Reston vision by preserving and interpreting its history, inspiring the present and influencing the future. “I think this icon installation perfectly illustrates the work we do here,” she said.

Flitcroft introduced Cheryle Terio-Simon, long-time board member of RHT and wife of the late Robert E. Simon, Reston’s founder. “Cheryl has been the visionary and architect of this project, taking part in every stage from choosing contractors and design layout to obtaining permits and fundraising. This installation would certainly not exist without Cheryl’s leadership,” Flitcroft said.”

As per Reston Connection, “Hooshang and Farah Najafbagy operated Calvert Gourmet Shop at the Plaza for many years after immigrating to the United States. After cutting the red ribbon to celebrate the installation of the Pharmacy Icons with his mother, Farah, and Flitcroft, Dr. Najafbagy, a Herndon-based chiropractor said, “This is an amazingly special place to me and of course to my parents…This is our home away from home. It was truly a special place for my late father…Thank you to everybody who supported this in the name of my mom and dad. It is an honor.”
