WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.(November 20, 2012) – The date won't come around again for another century, and Clerk Sharon Bock wants to celebrate December 12, 2012 by giving couples the chance to exchange vows that day in the courtroom of Palm Beach County's Historic Courthouse.

"This is the last time this century that couples can have a wedding date like this," Clerk Bock said. "Getting married in the courtroom of Palm Beach County's Historic Courthouse is a way to make the day even more special for couples who choose to get married with us on 12/12/12."

Clerk Bock will personally perform some of the ceremonies on 12/12/12, starting at noon. Ceremonies will be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Historic Courthouse, 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach.
