SCRANTON — Marley’s Mission, Newton Township, welcomed the Express Employment Professionals Clydesdales with a place to stay during the horses’ recent visit to Northeastern Pa. from March 9 through 11. The Clydesdales participated in the company’s Friday, March 11 fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network at Mohegan Sun Pocono and marched in the Scranton and Wilkes-Barre Saint Patrick’s Day parades that same weekend.

Express Employment Professionals Scranton is owned by Amy Clegg, of Clarks Summit.

The Mohegan Sun event included raffles, a silent auction, live bagpipes music by Jim Sweeney, performances by the Small Wonders Children’s Choir and the Crossmolina School of Dance, the crowning of the Miss Express Clydesdale Queen and more. 400 attendees had their photos taken with the horses and some won a ride around the track in the 1800’s replica stagecoach that Prince William and Duchess Kate rode on when they toured North America.

Tunkhannock Area High School student Kady Hodge was crowned Miss Express Clydesdale Queen and her court includes Crestwood High School student Grace Penney and Holy Redeemer High School student Rachel Jones.

Hodge will receive a $1,000 scholarship and Penney a $500 scholarship.
