    Golden Circle Fiesta!

    Last updated 11 months ago

    The Golden Circle Annual Picnic turned into a big Cinco De Mayo Festival! Over 150 members joined us at Bayfront Park for a lovely afternoon. Munching on chips and salsa and enjoying sangria and beer, they donned Mexican hats, mustaches and played maracas. An excellent Mariachi band showed up, getting the crowd clapping, singing and dancing. After a bbq lunch and more festivities, party goers had a chance to bust open a piñata and win some raffle prizes. A great time was had by all, especially our employees. Be sure to check out all the photos in our Facebook Album.

    The Golden Circle is for people 55 years of age and older, who enjoy celebrating and going on adventures. They also receive many bank perks for their loyalty.

    Community Bank Supports Cystic Fibrosis Walk

    Last updated 11 months ago

    Community Bank of Florida is pleased to support the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Miami Walk. Local business owner Karen Alba and her son, Diego, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, brought the walk to the bank’s attention. Cystic Fibrosis is a life threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of tens of thousands of young people. Since she is so passionate about helping those affected, Karen and her husband opened the Pediatric Respiratory Care center in Homestead to provide respiratory therapy to patients of all ages and conditions like Cystic Fibrosis.  If you would like to help, you can join the event or make a donation at any Community Bank location. The walk will be held on Sunday, May 5th at Historic Virginia Key Park. Check in and the beach party themed festivities begin at 8am, with the walk commencing at 9 am.

    For more information about the Great Strides Miami Walk, call 954-739-5006 or register for the event online at http://ftlauderdale.cff.org/greatstrides

    5th Annual "Casting for a Cause" Tournament

    Last updated 11 months ago

    Community Bank of Florida is pleased to sponsor the 5th Annual Casting for a Cause fishing tournament benefitting the Prader-Willi Florida Association.  Prader-Willi Syndrome affects one in every 12,000 children born. This genetic condition results in insatiable hunger, slower metabolism, learning disabilities, speech issues, behavior difficulties and weak muscle tone, among many other medical challenges.

    Although there has been an increase in PWS diagnoses over the last 10 years and DNA testing is highly accurate, awareness remains low and up to 75% of those with PWS are still undiagnosed. It is a life-long condition with no cure – but early diagnosis can help manage symptoms and prevent life threatening complications such as heart disease, sleep apnea, pulmonary disorders and diabetes.

    The funds raised from this tournament will go to fund research projects, provide families the funding to attend conferences and obtain materials they need to help them deal with the syndrome, and help with crisis intervention due to behavioral issues which is an intricate part of this syndrome.

    For more information about the fishing tournament and sponsorship opportunities available, visit www.castingforacause.com or call 305-245-6484.

     

    Scholastic Breakfast Details

    Last updated 11 months ago

    The annual Scholastic Breakfasts began in mid April at the Hampton Inn in Homestead with Coral Reef Senior High School’s 13th Annual “Barracuda Award of Distinction,” which recognized the top graduating students from each of the six specialized academies at Coral Reef. The next day, over at Keys Gate Golf & Country Club, students were recognized from South Dade Senior High School at the 28th Annual “Buccaneer Award of Distinction.” Top students from each of the six academies were featured in a slide show as they were recognized and awarded their personalized medals.

    The following week, Robert Morgan Education Center held their ninth Annual "Pirate Award of Distinction.” The tradition began with Robert Morgan’s first graduating class, recognizing the summa cum laude of the graduating students. Just a few days later, Homestead Senior High School celebrated their  "27th Bronco Award of Distinction,” highlighting the summa cum laude and giving each student a medal. The school’s AFJROTC Color Guard added to the festivities by presenting the flags.

    Last but not least, on April 25th, the breakfast returned to the Hampton Inn to celebrate Southridge Senior High School’s 24th Annual “Spartan Award of Distinction.” The summa cum laude received a medal from the school while a slide show featured their achievements.

    Miami Dade County Public School Board Representative, Dr. Lawrence Feldman, made the breakfasts a priority and attended each of the events. He greeted the groups, encouraging the students to take risks in life in order to learn and grow. Robert L. Epling, President and CEO of Community Bank, was the guest speaker for each of the breakfasts. He spoke to the students, informing them they were always one choice away from changing their lives. He told the audience the story of his first year at college and how his mother helped him get through being home-sick. He said that having his mom there to help him make the right choice was what made his life successful. He then asked the students to take a moment to thank their parents and continue to make the right choices ahead in life. At the end of each breakfast, students were given an inspirational book from Simple Truths; One Choice and the announcement was made they would all be featured in full page ads in the local newspapers.
