Sending Flowers to Residents of Killen, AL
It is a town located in Lauderdale County, and the first settlers came to the town in the 1800s. In 1826, Joseph Mason was the first postmaster of the community called Masonville, which was later renamed Killen, and it existed until 1866. The construction of the Alabama Canal led to the growth of the area. The Canal was constructed to solve the navigation issues created by the shoals in the Tennessee River. The construction of the Canal started in 1875, and it was later renamed the Muscle Shoals Canal. Lock six was the headquarters and was located south of the area; most of the citizens were employed on the Canal at different levels of operation while others supplied raw materials for the construction or food for operation. The Corps of Engineers later gave two hundred men employment, and most of the workers started to build homes close to their place of work.
Development of the Community
Mr. James Sharp Killen, in 1895, built a general store and submitted an application for a post office. He sent a proposal with three names, and Killen was chosen. The post office was opened in 1896, and the Town of Killen was born. The town was incorporated in 1957, and a police station was also established the same year. The town fire department started operation in 1961 and was followed by a park and a library.
The town has developed because of the presence of good citizens and the moral standards of the churches. The town has the Killen Lions Club, which was chartered in 1957 and served as an asset to the community. The town also has schools that residents of the community use. Some of the schools are Brooks Elementary and Brooks High School. Avas Flowers offers delivery of flowers to all schools in the community at a very affordable price. Our collection of flowers can be custom-suited to your taste. Visit our website for more information and you can also contact our customer service representatives for any guidance or assistance in choosing your arrangement. The following are some of the notable people from the community, such as Patrick Hape, a former NFL player, Marsha Thornton, a country music singer, and Willie Ruff, a jazz musician.

What our customers say:
Dear Avas, This was my first order with you, and it was an important one, so I was somewhat apprehensive. That was soon to be relieved! Since I am in a different time zone from N.C. (I'm in N.M.) I placed the order on line. The only difficulty I had was the limitation of letters in the message box. Since this was my sister-in-law's first wedding anniversary since the death of my brother last Christmas, the message was important. Next day I called your office and was able to extend the wording to my satisfaction. The only glitch was the 7 minute wait for one of your polite employees. My recipient was delighted! Overwhelmed by the beauty of the arrangement, (which I left to your designers to compose) the wording of the message was perfect, and the flowers outside her door early on the morning of the delivery date as requested. I will not be hesitant to use your services again, believe me. Thanks so much for doing as I asked and for living up to your advertisements. Sincerely, Marcy.
