Collins Reviews

It is a small town, so you pretty much know everyone. Some people would not like this, but I find it nice. I find satisfaction in the concept off a close community. Collins is also filled with beautiful pastures and wildlife. I have lived here my entire like, and I could not imagine growing up any where else.

I like the veterans home and more activities are needed for younger kids. The schools are ok. I do think that they need more teachers that are stern with the students and not afraid to discipline.
Collins is a pretty small town, but the people are great. The community here is strong. I would love to see more small businesses to come and thrive in the area.
