WHO IS MR. COLLINS?
Last week we left off with William Collins living in San Francisco and working as an electrician in 1910. From 1911 to 1913 the San Francisco directories list William as a single man. William gets married sometime between 1913 to 1914 to a woman named Annie. From 1914-1917 he continues to be listed as an electrician who works for wages. During this time, no commercial listings show up for a Collins Electrical Company or William J. Collins.
To be continued…

Many thanks to our community partners who donated to our business campaign and raised $22,500 for AHA.
A group of employees and their family members gathered at the State Theatre in Modesto last week to hear from six local speakers who empowered the audience to think about how we can make our lives and the lives of others more colorful and positive. Collins was happy to support this event. It made us think about how happy we are to be a part of our communities and sharing our colors.
