    Horses Helping Heroes

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Are you familiar with Good Hope Equestrian Training Center (GHETC)? We've been a proud supporter for many years and were happy to donate to their recent golf tournament. We'd like to share what they were fundraising for - Horses Helping Heroes. The program has already provided equine assisted activities to more than 200 veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury, amputations, post-traumatic stress disorder and spinal cord injuries. 

    “We are helping our veterans to develop leisure skills and friendships, while also aiding them in their rehabilitative goals,” said Peggy Bass, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Center.  “In light of our documented and observational findings, we have found that the Good Hope Horses Helping Heroes project has helped the veterans in the following ways: increased self-confidence, depression and anxiety reduction, as well as decreased feelings of isolation and impulse modulation.”

    Good Hope is a 20 acre facility in the Redlands that includes 14 horses, stables, riding areas, picnic areas and a clubhouse. In addition to the Horses Helping Heroes project, they help 400 disabled children and adults find hope and independence through working with horses. To find out how you can get involved call Good Hope Equestrian Training Center at 305-258-2838 or visit

    Last updated 4 years ago

    The annual Homestead VFW Post 4127 Veteran’s Day Parade will be held on Monday, November 11th, 2013 at noon in downtown Homestead. This parade, honoring the memory of the men and women who have fought to defend our nation and liberty is the oldest and, usually, the largest Veteran’s Day celebration in Miami-Dade County. We encourage you to bring the family to this fun and patriotic event. Look for our Veterans walking with the bank’s 1920s vehicle, passing out candy and patriotic goodies. We hope to see you there!

    We love dressing up every Halloween and this year our HR department added a fun twist- a pumpkin decorating contest. Our winning team was the Main Office Lobby, dressed as angels, fallen angels and a few 'lil devils who called themselves "Holy Smokes." Check out our photo album to see all the contestants. Which team was your favorite?
