Velva Reviews

Velva is a community where everyone takes care of each other. If somebody needs something they just go and ask their neighbor with little to no hesitation. There are some people in Velva who are alcoholics and almost everybody in town knows who they are and they tend to just stay away from them. I do have to say that is our one down fall, Velva's alcoholics. Velva is a very good community and for that I am glad I got to grow up there.
