Collins will accept checks and cash in his room, although after the first few weeks of school there will be an online site that will open up that will accept credit cards.
“The book will contain a lot of senior pages, expanded coverage of sports and clubs and organizations and a lot of great pictures of Pine Tree students, faculty and staff,” he said. “The theme is Our True Colors, and the book will certainly contain that.”
