A recognition ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 4 to honor the 2022 Natchitoches Treasures. 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 recognition ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 4, at 11 a.m. at the Natchitoches Events Center, located at 750 Second Street. Light refreshments will be served. The public and the media are invited to attend.

The 2022 Natchitoches Treasures were selected by a committee of those who have previously been named a Natchitoches Treasure. Natchitoches Treasures have been selected each year since 2008. The treasures are selected from nominations received from members of the community.

The 2022 Natchitoches Treasures are Mr. Brad Ferguson, Former Sheriff Victor Jones, Ms. Bobbye Lee, Dr. Chris Maggio, Mr. Warren Massia, and Mr. Lisso Simmons.

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.
