Community non-profits and individuals holding fundraisers are encouraged to send pres releases along with photos to c/o

Downtown/Canal Street and provide 24/7 online-media coverage for a 21st-century world video by Sera Frederick.

The video was shot by during the 2009 inaugural Christmas on Canal, which featured a towering and beautiful artificial Christmas tree, complete with lights. The courtesy photo shows Hedda the Heron, the mascot for Historic Canal Street Merchants Association, with calendars for sale with the mascot's likeness to help pay for local activities.  The tree lighting starts at 6 p.m. and will have full coverage of all of the festivities. 

Editor's note: The following story was submitted by contributing writer Dale Smith:
