Natchitoches Treasures announced


 Recognition ceremony slated for Friday, Oct. 25

A recognition ceremony will be Friday, Oct. 25 at 11 a.m. at the Natchitoches Events Center to honor this year’s group of Natchitoches Treasures; Johnnie Emmons, Jack McCain Jr., John Dale Ropp and Cynthia Sutton. Light refreshments will be served and the public and the media are invited to attend.

The Natchitoches Treasures are an elite group of Natchitoches residents of retirement age who have made a lasting contribution to the community through their generosity, service, volunteerism and spirit.

The 2019 Natchitoches Treasures were selected by a committee of those who have previously been named as a Natchitoches Treasure.  Natchitoches Treasures have been selected each year since 2008 and are selected from nominations received from members of the community.

The recognition ceremony will highlight the contributions made to the City of Natchitoches and the community by each newly elected Treasure, as well as pay tribute to those individuals named as Natchitoches Treasures in years past.
