    20 Years of Service!

    Last updated 4 years ago

    CBF is proud to celebrate Patty Medeiros’ 20th anniversary with our financial family. Patty is our Director of Credit Risk, where she makes sure we comply with consumer loan regulations and encourages activities that reinvest in our communities. She also oversees the credit department, where they crunch loan figures and complete tasks after loans are closed. Over the years at the bank, Patty has been recognized numerous times, including as Employee of the Year and she received our Captain Community Award. She reflects on her tenure here and says, “The bank is a wonderful place to work; not only have I been able to grow in my professional life, but in my personal life as well.”

    When away from work, Patty spends as much time as possible with her family. Her three sons have blessed her with three grandchildren. She loves to teach them old fashioned games, put together jig-saw puzzles and watch movies. In addition, she is also ‘mom’ to a rescue dog named Max.

    Donate your gently used books to a great program!

    CBF is happy to partner with the Kiwanis Club of South Dade in the “Just 1 Book” book drive. “Just 1 Book” was started in 2010 by a girl name Sarah from Central Florida who came up with an idea to help childhood literacy by recycling new or gently used children’s books. Today, “Just 1 Book” has donated thousands of books to needy areas and programs. They will continue to collect and distribute books to children in need, as long as there are kids who want to read.  Sarah’s ultimate goal is to have “Just 1 Book” Book Mobiles that will bring books to needy kids in their own neighborhoods

    All of Community Bank’s South Dade locations have collection boxes for books targeted to children ages 0-21. Collection efforts will continue until April 1, 2014 so please drop off as many new or gently used books as possible to support the cause! For further information about “Just 1 Book,” visit their website:

    Are you in the Network?

    Our February Business Plus Network meeting was fun and informative. Members scrambled around the room vying to be the first to complete their business mingle bingo card. Congratulations to our winner, Kevin Felder! The short icebreaker gave members insight about each others' businesses and sparked great conversations.

    Next, we had CPAs Nathan McKenzie, Jim Pierce and Vicky Sickles on hand to answer all the tax related questions that keep business owners up at night. This panel did a great job answering questions and offering different perspectives.

    The meeting ended with our 5 minute business highlight - Dade County Farm Bureau was selected to present at last month's meeting and Debbie Brady explained to the group "You don't have to be a grower to be a member." 

    Our network is open to any business owner in the area. There is no cost, no obligation and you don't even have to be a customer! Join us at our next meeting and let us help you grow you business.

    We’re joining together to fundraise for one of our own –   a long term, well loved employee battling cancer. Stop by for a $5 car wash and check out tons of yard sale items including clothing and furniture. If you get hungry, we’ve got hot dogs and baked goods with cold drinks to wash them down!


    Happy New Year!

    Let us remember old friends and good times gone by... We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.

    Wondering what Auld Lang Syne is all about? Written by a Scottish man named Robert Burns in the 1700s, the song wasn't intended for the holidays. It just so happened that on the stroke of midnight in 1929, Guy Lombardo's band played the song at a live performance in New York and it has been a tradition even since. Want to impress everyone when they mumble through the song? Here are the translated words:

    Should old acquaintance be forgot,
    and never brought to mind?
    Should old acquaintance be forgot,
    and auld lang syne?

    For auld lang syne, my dear,
    for auld lang syne,
    we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
    for auld lang syne.
    And surely you’ll buy your pint cup
    and surely I’ll buy mine!
    And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
    for auld lang syne.

    We two have run about the slopes,
    and picked the daisies fine ;
    But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
    since auld lang syne.

    We two have paddled in the stream,
    from morning sun till dine;
    But seas between us broad have roared
    since auld lang syne.

    And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
    And give us a hand o’ thine !
    And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
    for auld lang syne.



    NOTE that our offices will close on New Year's Eve at 4pm and be closed on New Year's Day.
