The date has been set for the 31st annual Nebraska Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Old West Days: October 20th through the 23rd, 2022. This gathering celebrates western heritage and brings participants from around the country to Valentine to enjoy poetry and music from renowned artists. However, the committee is critically lacking members and the public’s help is needed to keep this event going. If you’d like to learn more and help with its continuation, please come to the next Old West Days meeting on Wednesday, March 9th, 2022 at 7 pm at the Valentine Livestock Auction Sale Barn Café. If you can’t make it and would still like to help, or if you’d like more information, please contact Old West Days President Rick Buoy at 402-340-9116.
