Collinsville Study Club continues tradition of serving others

The Collinsville Study Club has been a part of the town’s history since April of 1929.  Through the decades, the Study Club has followed its motto: “We study that we may serve.”  Club member Jennifer Wilkins said, “The goal of the club is to be of service to the community.”

Two events celebrate traditions, bring crowds to Collinsville
Two events celebrate traditions, bring crowds to Collinsville

I attended my first Collinsville planning meeting for two fall events on May 16 where I learned about two important local events: the Turkey Trot and the Quilt Walk. The meeting was held in Collinsville’s very own history museum. Board members and I sat at a handcrafted dark wood table donated by Bobby Elrod.

Music, message make Sunday church visit memorable
Music, message make Sunday church visit memorable

Sunday I attended the Harris Temple Church of God in Christ. I was somewhat nervous for a couple of reasons. I had not been to church in a long time, I did not know anyone who would be at the church, and I had never been to an African American church.
