Peninsula Regional Lights Holiday Star In Memory Of State Trooper Eddie Plank

Holiday Star

On Friday, November 29, 2019, Peninsula Regional Medical Center will light its holiday star decoration atop the Medical Center.  The unique star, measuring 22 feet from tip to tip, will remain lit throughout the holiday season.

The star has been the centerpiece of Peninsula Regional’s holiday decorating theme for the last 24 years.  In 1995, following the death of Maryland State Police Trooper First Class Edward A. Plank, Jr. who was lost in the line of duty, PRMC began dedicating the lighting of the star each year in Trooper Plank’s memory.  It also serves as a tribute to the Medical Center’s close working relationship with local emergency responders and law enforcement officers on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Peninsula Regional would like to ask all residents to take a moment during this holiday season to thank our local emergency responders, law enforcement officers and our friends and family serving in the military, and to remember our heroes like Trooper Plank who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our safety.
