Bob Latta, the longest-serving member of The Hesston Record, will be departing the newspaper.
A come-and-go reception will be held for Latta on Wednesday, Aug. 27 from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at the Hesston Record Office in Old Town Square.
All community members are welcome to come and share their memories and bid Latta a fond farewell.
Latta has been part of the Hesston community since 1985 when he purchased The Record. Latta sold The Record to Joel Classen and Don Ratzlaff in 2005.
Despite selling The Record, Latta stayed with the newspaper and began covering Swather Sports.
He and his wife, Cathy, are in the process of re-locating to Wichita to be closer to Cathy’s workplace.
