    Willie L. Carpenter Honored

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Community Bank of Florida is pleased to announce Willie L. Carpenter, Senior Vice President, was recognized at The Homestead/Florida City Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Breakfast as an Outstanding Community Leader. The Breakfast is an annual event held by the Community Relations Board to honor Dr. King as well as those in the community who give back. This year, a special tribute was made in honor of the City of Homestead’s Centennial Anniversary. A keynote speaker is always on hand to give words of wisdom and Dr. Joseph D. Turner inspired everyone as this year's speaker. The event draws over 300 guests annually and includes singing and greetings from local dignitaries. Congratulations to Bill Duquette and Antrel Rolle, who were also honored.

    Golden Circle's Holiday Adventure

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Community Bank of Florida expressed appreciation for their Golden Circle Members by having a Holiday gathering at the National Historic Landmark, Bok Tower Gardens. Transportation was provided for members who live in the Lakeland area. A group of approximately 75 members and friends met in the morning and began their day exploring the beautiful gardens. After walking the grounds, they toured the historic Pinewood Estate mansion. The 1930s style home was decorated for the holidays, giving it an even more festive atmosphere. Members enjoyed participating in the judging of the Professional Interior Decorators contest. Afterwards, the group enjoyed a luncheon and desserts in the garden.

    Community Bank’s Golden Circle is a special group for those 55 and older. The Golden Circle offers  many banking benefits, plus exciting extras- including group travel to historic sites and tourist destinations, Holiday Parties, Educational Seminars, the Annual Picnic and the Golden Circle Newsletter. For more information, contact Golden Circle Coordinator, Evelyn Guilfoyle at (866) 820-1533.

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Community Bank of Florida is pleased to announce that Brett Ekblom has been appointed to the Keys Regional Board of Directors. Mr. Ekblom is a Tavernier resident who graduated from Coral Shores High School and went on to pursue several endeavors, including earning his Commercial Pilot License, Flight Instructor License, Florida Real Estate Salesman License and his State of Florida General Contractor License. After six years in the industry, he decided to use his construction skills to form his own business, Native Construction Contracting, Inc. Although his business is now almost a decade old, Brett continues to refine his expertise, most recently earning his State of Florida Underground Utilities and Excavation Contractor License.

     Brett stays busy managing projects, but always makes time to give back to his hometown. You may have seen him fundraising for college scholarships at the Island Mr. Legs Contest or Dancing with the Stars. He also lends his time as a board member of local organizations such as the Good Health Clinic and the Tavernaero Airport Property. The entire Community Bank team is excited to welcome such a dynamic new member to our Financial Family.
