ST. CLOUD --Members of the hospitality industry gathered at the River's Edge Convention Center this morning (Wednesday) to extend a special message to St. Cloud visitors.

Those in attendance took part in a photo shoot, put on by the St. Cloud Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Julie Lunning is the Executive Director for the CVB. She says the photo is a special way to say thanks to people who visit St. Cloud.

The CVB is designed to help promote the city of St. Cloud as a tourist destination. Lunning says St. Cloud wouldn't succeed in this industry without the help of all involved.

The CVB is made up of anyone impacted by tourism in the area.
