Now would be a good time to relight the Milford star

Dear Kind Person,

Would it not be terrific for the Milford Star to be shine bright during this time of #separatetogether?

Please see "Boulder to light Flagstaff Star to 'raise the hopes of our beloved community'amid coronavirus pandemic," as it was my inspiration to inquire:

Editor's note: The Courier received the following message on March 25: "To show Honesdale residents and businesses support during these troubling times, the Greater Honesdale Partnership with support from Honesdale Borough has decided to light the iconic Dick Smith 'Winter Wonderland' Star upon Irving Cliff tonight, March 25, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. For us, this demonstrates a united community. This shows we stand with our town and members. More than ever it is important we feel connected. This crisis will only display our strength and love for one another. Hopefully, the star will inspire a feeling of peace and help calm the fear of the unknown. Continue to take care of one another and stay healthy. If you would like to be part of the lighting and show your support, please turn your porch light on at 7:30 p.m."
