DANVILLE — Travelers take note, Saturday is Passport Day, and Montour County's Prothonotary's Office is the only one in the region participating in the nationwide event, according to prothonotary Sue Kauwell.

U.S. citizens are required to present a passport book, passport card or other travel documents to enter Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda beginning June 1.

The courthouse office will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to process passport applications. Photos will also be taken at the courthouse. Anyone, even non-county residents, can apply.

"This is great there is interaction with the other offices to make it fairly easy for people," Commissioner Jerry Ward.

"This is a nice service that this little county offers," Commissioner Jack Gerst said. Chairman Trevor Finn thanked her for her participation in the project.

A passport book costs $100 and a passport card is $45 but can't be used when flying. Both are good for 10 years.
