Residents Can Recycle Christmas Trees to Help Save Louisiana's Wetlands

 NEW ORLEANS, LA-Mayor Landrieu announced today the City's continued participation in the Christmas Tree Program for wetlands restoration. 

 New Orleans residents wishing to participate in the program are asked to remove all lights, tinsel, and ornaments from their Christmas trees and leave them on the curb on the specified date of collection for their neighborhood by 4:00 am.  Artificial and flocked trees are not eligible for the program.  The City's solid waste collection contractors will collect trees from citizens on their specified date of collection for their neighborhood within the dates of January 6, 7, and 8. Tree collection for the French Quarter/DDD will be on January 6th only.

 Volunteers are needed throughout the month of January to prepare the trees for placement in wetland areas.  Volunteers should be 18 or older and able to lift approximately 30 pounds.  Beginning in February, the Louisiana National Guard will collect the trees via helicopter and deposit them in pre-selected coastal zones as determined by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

 Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Dani Levine in the Office of Coastal & Environmental Affairs at 504-658-4071.

       If you were lucky enough to see the Post K New Orleans Actor's

"Graae's Anatomy." Don't miss the fun because you know you'll want to 
be "in that number" for Mr. Graae's delightful solo evening of song, 
dance and story.

       "Graae hurrah!...one of the best entertainers I have ever seen 
in my life.a prodigiously talented impish dynamo who can be wildly, 
wickedly funny one moment and then leave you emotionally stunned the 
next with the beauty of compelling ballads sung in the purest 
tenor/baritone imaginable."
       - David Cuthbert
       Three shows, only, so call now for better seating!!

Cat Louie

Captain Louie is the story of a young boy on Halloween night who escapes into his own imagination as a means of coping with the loneliness he feels when he moves to a new neighborhood. Of its initial production, The New York Times said Captain Louie captures "the sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story."

The story is full of tricks and treats, and the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin). Most of all, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.

CAPTAIN LOUIE-Only 9 shows!
FRI 1/7 @ 7:30 pm
