    Community Bank of Florida is extremely proud to announce Dr. James “Doc” Boilini has been elected to serve as board president of the Florida Keys Electric Coop. Dr. Boilini also serves as the bank’s chairman of the Keys Region Board of Directors.

    Dr. Boilini is a Credentialed Cooperative Director, and was originally appointed to the board in 2004 to complete the remainder of an unexpired term for District 1, Key Largo. He was then elected in 2005, and has been re-elected in three-year intervals.

    Doc is well known in the Upper Keys, as the owner of Doc’s Diner and Boilini Vision Care. He is also known for his extensive community involvement, serving as the president and founding board member of Jacobs Aquatic Center and as a board member for Mariners Hospital. In addition, he is involved in numerous other community organizations including the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce and Take Stock in Children.

    Elected by Co-op members, FKEC's Board of Directors represents power consumers in four voting districts from Key Largo to Marathon. The board has the authority to establish policies and review operational procedures to promote a progressive, financially-sound utility. Only FKEC directors participate in the election of board officers. Following a nomination process, new officers are elected by individual secret ballot at the company’s annual organizational meeting. New officers are up for re-election annually, and there is no limit to the number of years one can serve in a particular office.

    March of Dimes Walk

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Community Bank of Florida teammates Erick Caceres and Annerys Grullon are long time supporters of the March of Dimes. Annerys was first introduced to the organization by Jim Simmons, who was born with cerebral palsy, and has been volunteering for the March of Dimes for 50 years.  

    Recently they participated in the Annual March of Dimes "March for Babies," a three mile walk-athon at Tropical Park. Joining them at the walk was coworker Terri Botti. With the help of bank staff, the group raised a total of $910.00!

    “Volunteering with the March of Dimes has been a heartwarming experience and it is extremely fulfilling to know we are helping babies become strong and healthy,” stated Erick.

    The March for Babies is the largest annual fundraiser for the March of Dimes, supporting lifesaving research and ground breaking programs for babies, moms and families.

    Golden Circle Fiesta!

    Last updated 1 year 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 1 year 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
