The fund-raiser is for a security system for Bethlehem police stables. One lucky winner will be chosen to have the Clydesdales visit their home on Sept. 15 — the hitch will arrive outside the winner’s home and parade down their street.

Will there be a special lane for the Clydesdales at the Circle in Easton to prevent a colision? Will they have to put money in the meter if they park in Easton?
