ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO! Another Fall Golf Event down in the books. Each one is special and can be remembered typically by the weather. This one will definateley be defined by the heat. However, that didn't stop our golfers from having a blast.
The day begin with registration, boxed lunches and a few words spoken by our Executive Vice President, Verity Watson. Then at noon off they went. While staff and volunteers were busy setting up for dinner, Phil Dunlevy set out to man the Putting Contest while Sharon Moore, our awesome photographer, traveled the course taking pictures, handing out cigars, and providing assistance where needed.
Some of our sponsors out on the course helped keep the golfers cool by offering special treats along the way.
Approximately five hours later the golfers were back, eager to turn in score cards and see who were the winners of a cash prize and of course the losers of the coveted toilet bowl trophies. While that was being tallied, everyone relaxed under the tent, enjoying steak, crabs, drinks, and great company.
The event was coming to a close. Jim McCulley, HBA/DE President said a few words followed by Jeff Haggerty who announced the awards. The following are our 1st, 2nd, and last place teams. Congratulations to all and thank you for supporting the Home Builders Association of Delaware.

Noble’s Pond Reaches out to Local School Program
DOVER, DE –Noble’s Pond (www.noblespondhomes.com), Delaware’s premier 55+ Active Adult Community, is proud to call Dover, De. home. Residents and staff members alike are involved in organizations, activities and charities throughout the metro area, both individually and as a group. Recently the Noble’s Pond staff reached out to Dover High School with a project that was tailor-made for one of the school’s job skills programs.
Special Education teacher Jomelle Bowen works with a group of Dover High School students on both academic and life skills. She oversees an in-school program to help students prepare for employment after high school. One of the program’s components is a printing shop, where students print logos, slogans, and graphics on cloth items for fellow students, neighbors and local businesses.
Noble’s Pond staff approached Bowen to see if her students would print new T-shirts for the community’s construction and service staff. The students were excited to have a “real world” assignment, and did an outstanding job creating the T-shirts, according to Bowen. She hopes this is just the beginning of a long-term partnership with Noble’s Pond, since the students have the ability to print a variety of cloth items including tote bags, golf shirts, party favors and much more.
Noble’s Pond is built and developed by Harry Miller III, a third-generation home builder, and president of Regal Builders, LLC. Amenities include a beautifully appointed clubhouse, large outdoor pool, bocce courts, a putting green, tennis and pickle ball courts, a five-acre pond with a pier and observation deck, natural walking trails and a community garden. The community was recently honored with nine Regal Awards from the Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBA/DE) for excellence in home building, interior design and community development, and received a 2018 Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau Serving Delaware for best practices, leadership, social responsibility and high standards of organizational ethics.
The 300-acre community just outside the City of Dover recently opened a spacious, new Welcome Center and Design Studio to offer current and prospective residents detailed information on the community and the surrounding area, as well as assistance with selecting custom finishes and features to create the perfect home. Earlier this year, Noble’s Pond unveiled seven new exciting floor plans. Three have been built as model homes onsite: the Bradford, the Camden and the Greenwold, while the other four are available for virtual tours at www.noblespondhomes.com. All have been designed with today’s active adult in mind and offer the latest in energy efficiency, as well as home automation from Intuity Home Intelligence to provide comfort, entertainment and security.
