JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Downtown Jonesboro Association has a lot going on and they want you to join in.

The capital funding campaign to make the Downtown Jonesboro Association a C3 non-profit and achieve Main Street status is currently underway.

A launch party will be taking place to give the public an opportunity to meet the new board members, ask questions and learn what is happening in the downtown area.

Shelli Wood is the vice-president for the Executive Committee of the Downtown Association. She said they want to get everyone involved with the downtown area.

"It's the entire city's responsibility to have a successful downtown," Wood told Region 8 News. "It benefits everybody. It benefits all the industries, all the banks, all the churches, you name it. Everything across Jonesboro. So, we think it's really important and we want to get everybody involved."

The launch party will take place Thursday from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at Arnold Real Estate on Main Street.

Everyone is welcome to drop in.
