A recognition ceremony Nov. 28 honored this year’s group of Natchitoches Treasures, 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 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 from nominations received from members of the community.
The 2017 Natchitoches Treasures are Dr. Ron McBride, L.J. Melder, Sr., Lusetta Rogers Anthony, Virginia Webb, and Wayne McCullen.
The recognition ceremony highlighted 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.
