AlvaTraz Cannabis selected as June Blooming Business of the Month
June 20, 2021
The Petunia Garden Club of Alva has chosen AlvaTraz Cannabis as the recipient of the June Blooming Business of the Month. The business is located on the south side of the downtown square at 413 Barnes St. and is owned and operated by Julie and Joey Melton and has been open for approximately a year.
Joey was able to retrieve the concrete planters out front that were previously used by the old Central National Bank prior to its rebuilding (now BancCentral National Association).
Several Alvans have lovingly contributed many of the plantings from their gardens as gifts to the store. Many visitors stop to enjoy the lovely and colorful displays. Julie smiled and said that it has been a joy for them seeing the expressions of passersby. Along with the planters are a chair and a round table displaying a lovely potted plant, in addition to the splendid full hanging planters that thrive in the shade of the morning sun.
Various plants, including colorful petunias, geraniums, etc, are flowing out of their containers. Julie stated that this has been a group effort of the Alva community with the public stopping by and smiling and enjoying the eye-appealing store front.
