Could anyone help me remember when Old Tyme Days began and I believe the festival ended a couple of years ago. Also, I was trying to remember when Cole Younger Days ended. Does anyone remember what years these two festivals began and ended?

Not sure when it ended but it still grips me. Some snooty people objected to celebrating Cole Younger the Outlaw.He also was one of the founding fathers of "youth for Christ. He was known as Uncle Cole by everyone and What the not so smart jack$%^'s didn't know was that Cole became a model citizen after his release from jail. He mentored troubled youth, Was known for much good in our town and was also was a founding member of "youth for Christ in our area. Much of his history was lost because someone stole all the information from the town archieves. But it burns my butt the snooty people who don't know jack got their way. It's now called
"Old Times Day." Yippe doodle idiots. A lost Treasure

Loved Cole Younger Days as a kid. Agree with Christineh, it's a shame people try to erase the history of such an interesting town. I suppose the PC crowd will eventually eradicate everything they deem unholy. It was a cool place to grow up when it wasn't so big.

He rode with Quantrill and burned down Lawrence, KS. Cole Younger was a hate monger.
