Passport Fair in Bailey honors music icons
Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Lydia Mendoza stamps highlight Post Office event
BAILEY – The Bailey Post Office will host a Passport Fair Saturday unlike any other – it will be part of a day-long event, “Stampin on the Lawn,” a community event highlighted by two dynamic music groups and the dedication of U.S. postage stamps honoring three musical legends: country music star Johnny Cash rhythm and blues singer/pianist Ray Charles, and Tejano music superstar Lydia Mendoza.
This event, free and open to the public, will be held Saturday, September 21, 2013, 9 am – 3 pm at Bailey Post Office, 6171 Deans Street on the front lawn. Passport applications will be accepted from 9 am – 12 noon. It’s a family event sponsored by the Bailey Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Postal Service and Postmaster Beverly Marriott.
Currently, most passports cost $135 for adults and $105 for children under 16 years of age, while passport cards cost $55 additionally, and $40 more for minors. Both parents must be present when processing passports for minors. Applicants are encouraged in advance to print an application online at www.usps.com/passport, and have it completed but unsigned prior to going to the Post Office.
To help the passport application process run smoothly and efficiently, the Postal Service recommends the following:
Entertaining the crowd for much of the day will be two bands, the East Coast Rhythm and Blues Band, and The Demon Deacon Soft Notes. Individuals and their families are welcome to bring blankets and lawn chairs, as there will be food, games and free activities for children. No alcoholic beverages will be allowed. For more information, call the Post Office at 252-235-3565.
