The Rock County Dryhootch would like to thank Rock County businesses and restaurants for recognizing veterans by providing free meals and discounts on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

We, as veterans and as a veterans service organization, sincerely appreciate all of the support from community members in Janesville and surrounding cities. This show of appreciation helps our local veterans be proud of having served our country.

We would like to continue the giving spirit by collecting donations of clothes for the Veterans Homeless Shelter this holiday season from Dec. 5-20. We will receive donations at the Rock County Dryhootch, 211 North Parker Drive, Janesville, during our meetings from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursdays. We specifically are requesting donations in sizes XL, 2XL, 3XL of long underwear, sweaters, shirts, jeans and coats. This is an opportunity to give back to our community during the time these veterans need it the most.
