Last Friday, Peter Baniak, Jay Nolan, John Nelson and I got together to start discussing KPA’s 150th anniversary celebration. In 2019, KPA will have its Sesquicentennial so the planning and discussion has started.
There will be a lot more forthcoming and you and your newspaper will be playing an important part in the celebration as we become the 10th state press association to reach 150 years old.
But the quote of the meeting, and perhaps the year, came from Peter who will be president when the 2019 convention begins.
Talking about a motto or theme for that celebration, Peter offered:
“How about, 150 years of #realnews!”
