Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Come out to Independence for our final weekend of our Parade of Homes event this Saturday and Sunday and tour 6 of our most popular floor plans including the highly anticipated Mayberry. Start the tour at our Whimbrel model, recently awarded Best Active Adult Home in Delaware.

If you plan to visit on Saturday, stop by the Independence Clubhouse for our 3rd Annual Arts & Craft Fair from 9am until 2pm. Even bigger than the last, this year the show will include 40 artists and crafters selling everything from jewelry, pottery, fused glass, stained glass, greeting cards, garden stakes, knitted/crocheted/embroidered/quilted items, soaps, candles, woodworking, and so much more! This is a great time to start your holiday shopping and check-off your gift list with handmade, one-of-a-kind items. Admission is free.

Brews and Bites Follow-Up

We had a fun filled day at our 1st Annual Brews & Bites Fall Festival at Independence! Good friends, good food & good drink mixed with some lively music and beer pong made for a great day in the Indy clubhouse.

Special thanks to Bethany Blues for providing the food and 3rd Wave Brewing Co. and Dogfish Head representatives for providing us with excellent local craft brews! We also enjoyed sampling 16 Mile brews while DJ Don helped set the mood.

Happy Fall!

 

Looking Forward and Welcoming Fall at Independence

By Mollie Stevenson, in Independence

Independence Monument

Welcoming fall and saying goodbye to summer has been a little challenging for the team here at Independence—only because it’s now unacceptable to wear flip flops to work, but who is really regulating that anyway? This summer was more than good to our team at Independence and there is so much to be excited about moving into the fall season.

October has undoubtedly been a month full of activity for the Schell Brothers team. We are offering huge incentives, welcoming new homeowners and as always, we are still finding time for a little fall fun out here at the beach.  We are more than excited to announce the opening of the much anticipated new phase of homesites. This new phase will boast 19 new homesites in close proximity to the clubhouse and amenities. Many of the newly released homesites will offer amazing views and open spaces. Be sure to check out the new homesites on our updated siteplan online.

Along with the long awaited homesites, we are also excited to introduce The Whimbrel, our newest home design in the Courtyard Series! This new floorplan has proven to be an excellent addition to the Schell home plan lineup at Independence.  We are beyond excited to announce that the Whimbrel will be our new model here at Independence and we are counting down the days until we break ground!

New homesites and a new floorplan are not the only exciting things happening at Indy this month. This is the best part… We are hosting yet another party! (Are you surprised?)  Mark your calendars for our first annual Fall Fest this Sunday October 27th from 12pm to 4pm. We will be welcoming our favorite local breweries and restaurants to be a part of this event. Join us and enjoy beer tastings, amazing food and of course, good times.

The energy around here is contagious, and the only way to believe it is to become part of it. As we gear up for the holiday season we are really looking forward to more great things to come at Independence!

By Mollie Stevenson, in Independence

Independence Quilters

On Saturday September 21st, local artists, crafters and quilters from across the Eastern shore will be joining us at Independence for the 1st Annual Arts & Craft Show!

This year’s craft fair is an indoor rain or shine event which will host 28 vendors who specialize in various crafting techniques! Our homeowners & local artists have been hard at work preparing for the event. There will be lots of hand-crafted works of art and definitely something for everyone.

Please come out to Independence Hall, located at 23767 Samuel Adams Circle in Millsboro, Delaware. There will be food, refreshments and plenty of home cooked baked goods for sale during the hours of 9am and 3pm.

We will also be holding a raffle to win an original painting from Local artist, Susan Macintire! We are beyond excited over here at Independence and can’t wait to showcase the hard work from not only our awesome Homeowners, but the local talent from across shore!

A Day in the Life at Independence

By Mollie Stevenson, in Independence

Indy event

First off, we would like to start by thanking everyone who was a part of the Day in the Life event at Independence.

It was a success beyond our anticipations, and we whole heartedly attribute that mostly to the outstanding effort put forth by not only the Schell Brothers team, but our amazing homeowners as well. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, or a better turn out.

The purpose of the event was to share what a day is like for our Independence homeowners. The lifestyle embraced by everyone who lives here is hard to fully capture in words, so we thought what better way to share then to let others experience it. Not only are the amenities amazing, but the people who make up the community are outstanding and we wanted people to get a taste of that first hand.

I think one of the most prominent aspects that stood out to me was the contribution of not only time, but of enthusiasm put towards the event by our homeowners. The way that Independence embraces the culture we promote at Schell makes our communities comparable to none. Our Independence Ambassadors were not only knowledgeable, but more than willing to share their personal Schell Brothers Experience with our guests. Our homeowners possess a particular sense of pride in Independence, and their willingness to contribute to this community’s growth and success is all but reaffirming that we as a company are staying true to our mission statement, and creating a culture of happiness which permeates through the homeowners within our communities.

So to those of you who shared a story, shook a hand, and stayed for a drink, thank you for helping make our First Day in the Life Event such a huge success!
