➤ VeloConcepts, from Page 22 garnering additional support from across the county and ultimately resulting in victory. In the case of Walmart, the corporation not only agreed to find a new location; it also deeded the original site to the Commonwealth.” The award was created by Lord Alan Watson of Richmond-upon-Thames in England, to strengthen the ties between Scenic Virginia and the Thames Landscape Strategy, two like-minded organizations based in Richmonds on either side of the Atlantic that are dedicated to preservation of the scenic environment. The Richmonds Medal international award recognizes excellence in scenic preservation. Luciana Duvall said that she and her husband love the beauty of Virginia and recognize the importance of preserving it for future generations. “The beauty of a place like this is important, so you have to save it to share with others,” she said. Residents of The Plains, they own a farmhouse that dates back to 1743 that was a safe house in the Civil War. That history and the history that surges through Virginia resonates with the Duvalls. “Virginia is just a very special place,” Luciana said. “It’s very im-
portant to use to support and preserve this beautiful land.” She said the award was a “pleasant surprise” and very thrilling for their family. Kilpatrick said their passion for preserving history is evident when they speak about their efforts. “The connection and commitment are manifest in their own acts of stewardship, in their support of many organizations, and in the powerful testimony they share with others in behalf of the causes of conservation and preservation,” she said. That passion is what led the Duke of Gloucester to bestow the award on Duvall. “HRH eloquently summarized our relationship in a letter that he presented to Scenic Virginia President Lisa Dickinson Mountcastle during The Richmonds Medal ceremony, in which he noted: “Both Scenic Virginia and the Thames Landscape Strategy are quite extraordinary in very many ways; they share real popular appeal and an imaginative sense of what it is about scenic Landscapes that fire people's' imagination. We should rejoice in having such enthusiastic and committed partnerships to guide the process of change along two such special stretches of river,” Powell said.
