Photos needed for new welcome center

Staff Report

The Cajun Coast Visitors and Convention Bureau issued its wish list Thursday for a variety of photographs of scenes in St. Mary Parish to be used on interpretative panels at its new welcome and interpretative center in Morgan City, Cajun Coast Executive Director Carrie Stansbury said in a news release.
Anyone who has photographs to contribute should put them on a CD and forward to the Cajun Coast office for the design people to look over, she said.
If the photos do not have a watermark on them, Cajun Coast will make every effort to preserve the photographer’s rights and will return the CD, Stansbury said. The mailing address is P.O. Box 2332, Morgan City, LA 70381.
The completion date for the new welcome center is scheduled for March, but an opening date has not been set.
Anyone with questions may contact the Cajun Coast Visitors and Convention Bureau office in Patterson at 985-395-4905.
