STUART -- Carolyn Timmann, Clerk of the Circuit Court for Martin County, announced that the Clerk's office will be open for Passport Day in the USA from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 9 at the Martin County Courthouse, 100 East Ocean Blvd. in Stuart.
This special one-day national event is being held to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications.
"I am honored to partner with the Department of State for the fifth Annual Passport Day in the USA," said Ms. Timmann. "In today's busy society, it is often difficult for working individuals and families to apply for passports during the work week. This special event, held on a Saturday, will offer a convenient opportunity for residents to complete their passport applications or obtain other passport information. Our office will have trained staff available to assist residents with passport photos, applications and to answer any questions."
