The people of Collinsville represent some of the best people I have met or will ever meet. The people of this town are hospitable, open, and kind – not just to me, but to all they encounter. I wasn’t expecting to be greeted with such warmth, but I am thankful for that and how it made my transition to town so much easier.

My invitation to join book club came the first week of being in town, and I was welcomed into a group of five women who met bi-weekly to talk books and catch up with each other.
