One of the hottest days of a belated summer greeted youngsters from barely walking to age 18 recently at the Arden Old-Timers Kidsâ€™ Day in the Arden arena. Youngsters competed in events that included pole bending, mutton bustinâ€™, goat tail tying and goat tail pulling and calf riding. The popular event is sponsored by the Arden Old-Timers Rodeo Association. The annual Arden Old-Timers Rodeo, usually held each May, will be staged at the Arden Old-Timers Rodeo Arena on Saturday, Sept. 17.
