The Namaqua Star celebrates Independence Day!

Max Moree, a 13-year old Loveland Boy Scout, delivered on his promise to have the Namaqua Star relit in time for the 4th of July last evening.  He will light it again for the fireworks (which were delayed due to weather) TONIGHT, July 5th!

This was the first time - after all these years as a Christmas and winter holiday decoration - that the Namaqua Star shone to celebrate Independence Day!

Moree took it upon himself to test/replace the strings of white bulbs that form a star in the Namaqua hills west of Loveland, Colorado.  His pains-taking work shone brightly through last night's torrential downpour.

Way to go, Max!
