Saturday's event at the Fairgrounds will be co-sponsored by Express Personnel, NEA Clinic and the Jonesboro Young Professional Network.  Carriage rides will be offered, as well as photo opportunities and memorabilia.  All proceeds will benefit the NEA Clinic's Charitable Foundation.

Meanwhile, representatives with the Express Personnel Clydesdales will appear as guests tomorrow (Thursday) on K8 News at 5.
