Swimming pools, ice cream cones, and endless sunshine… It’s almost sweet summertime! With school out for the season, your children are gearing up for all of the outdoor activities that await (AKA their next great adventures). In family-friendly Poolesville, just minutes from your Kettler Forlines home, there are so many options for you and your children to enjoy together. Take a look at our recommendations for summer 2019:

June 29: Red, White, and Brews

From 6 to 10 pm, Whalen Commons will host a pre-4th of July party complete with live music, delicious food, and family-friendly celebrations. Get ready for America’s birthday with your friends and family at Poolesville’s favorite park. Your children will love inflatables, food trucks, and live music (including Mindy Miller & The Chrome Tears and 19th Street Band) as you enjoy a beer garden, local wines, and so much more.
July 4: America’s Birthday Bash in D.C.

What better place to celebrate America’s birthday than beautiful Washington, D.C.? An hour from Poolesville, there’s nothing like a summertime trip to the country’s capital. From watching the parade along Constitution Ave to kayaking along the Potomac to marveling at the fireworks from the Lincoln Memorial steps, the fun here is endless. And if you want to stay close to home, there will be music, food, and fireworks at the Polo Grounds!

July 14: Sunflowers at McKee-Beshers Marsh

If you and your children enjoy getting creative and trying new things, this event is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the season while expanding your horizons and honing your artistic abilities. From 6 to 9 am, Emily Carter Mitchell will guide you through the gorgeous sunflower fields at the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area, and teach you all about the important concepts of nature and wildlife photography.

July 21: Bark in the Park

This event is something your children will cherish fur-ever! From 6 to 9 pm, Whalen Commons will transform into a dog lover’s paradise, where families are encouraged to bring their paw-some pooch to join in on all of the fun. There will be a cute dog contest, games for dogs, prizes, a DJ, Montgomery County Police K9 Demos, rescue groups, food vendors, a farmers market, and of course, all of the licks and tail wags you can imagine.

August 23: Friday on the Commons — Totally Rad

Take a trip down memory lane while your kids discover the righteous fun of the ‘80s! It’s all happen’en down at Whalen Commons from 6 to 10:30 pm, where you’ll find all of your favorite things about the most tubular decade of all, including roller skating, Pac-Man, hacky sack, and more. Make sure to tease your hair and put on your best neon — this event is all about doing it big. And don’t miss a special screening of Goonies at 8:30 pm!

September 21: Poolesville Day

The perfect way to wrap up summer and say hello to fall, Poolesville Day features all-day activities and events for you and your children to take part in. It all begins with a 5k race in the morning, followed by a parade, local entertainment, a car show, and more. Enjoy vendors of all kinds, from irresistible festival food and sweet treats to crafts and jewelry to fun games. Enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather with your incredible community!

As the streets of Poolesville come alive with the magic and charm of summer, take your children out to experience the sweetest parts of the season. While they await the next school year, they’ll absolutely love making some of their best memories with their family and friends. From all of us at Kettler Forlines Homes, happy summer and have fun!

Granite Countertop in Kitchen

When you choose a Kettler Forlines home, we work with you to personalize every detail, from the front style to the finishes. In fact, personalizing your new Kettler Forlines home is probably the most fun part of the home building experience. After all, this is the stage where you get to make your new home truly yours.

Part of our personalization process involves arranging an appointment for you at Artelye Marble & Granite, one of the premier sources for marble and granite in the mid-Atlantic region. Artelye Marble & Granite fabricates, installs, and supplies an impressive variety of natural and man-made materials. Everything is hand-selected directly from sources and quarries around the world. In addition to granite, they have marble and quartz choices.

Artelye’s general manager, Martin Caslow, meets personally with each homebuyer on site at the granite warehouse to review possible selections. You will be able to choose your own slab of granite – from traditional options like Black Pearl or Bianco Antico, or more dramatic selections like Red Dragon or Peacock Green. With over 2,000 different varieties of natural granite slabs to choose from, picking one may be the most difficult yet enjoyable part of the process!

Once you personally select your slab from the stones in stock, Artelye’s experts carefully cut and finish your countertop, analyzing the quality of the material, verifying the dimensions with laser guided equipment in your kitchen , and perfecting the final product.

Imagine designing the kitchen of your dreams – custom wood cabinets, gleaming stainless steel appliances, and counters made from a granite slab you picked out! Well, that dream can easily become a reality at Kettler Forlines Homes!
