CBF is excited to celebrate Lynne Guadamuz's 15th Anniversary! Lynne is known around the bank for being one of our most positive cheerleaders and is often referred to as our official "Woo-hooer." Her friendly personality is a great asset, as Lynne has constant contact with customers who need assistance with online banking or credit cards. She has over 20 years of banking experience in several different departments, which strengthens her problem solving abilities.
Several years ago, Lynne used her energy to help launch the bank's Culture Club, an internal committee that throws parties, events and does random thank you's for the employees. She also spends much of her time volunteering in the community, and for the last 15 years has been a dedicated member of the Homestead Junior Woman's Club. Her leadership extended to the state level of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, where she has been a Florida Officer for the past four years. Lynne's other passions include singing, crafting, riding 4-wheelers, and of course, spending time with her teenage daughter. Being a Miami native, Lynne says her inspiration for volunteering comes from the fact that she "loves helping those she has known her entire life."

That's right, Norma Moreno has been a CBF employee for 25 years and we are happy to celebrate it! Norma is the Financial Center Manager of our Princeton Office, and she says her favorite part of the job is visiting with customers and that “the bond, rapport and relationship I have with my customers is very special to me.”
Norma joined our team in 1988 with customer service experience, having managed the second floor of a local retail department store. She trained as a teller at our Main Office and then transferred to the Quail Roost Office for the next four years. After Hurricane Andrew, she was promoted to Teller Supervisor at the Princeton Office; in 2000, she was again promoted, this time to financial center manager. She recently moved back to the Princeton office and happily settled in there. Norma has amazed fellow employees by achieving perfect attendance for the last 17 years and plans on keeping that record.
Born in Kingsville Texas, Norma’s family moved to Delray Beach at an early age and now she happily resides in Princeton with her husband, Nick. They love to spend time with their six grandchildren, who are the love and joy of their lives. They also enjoy being part of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church congregation. Reflecting on her years of service, Norma stated, “Community Bank is a wonderful place to work; it gives me opportunities to help local businesses and my community.”

CBF's Culture Club has done it again! They organized an employee outing to a Florida Panthers hockey game and everyone had a great time! Two buses full of employees and family/friends spent an evening watching hockey in comfort. Each employee received a free ticket that included an all you can eat dinner buffet, unlimited beer, group photos and free transportation. The Panthers even threw in an autographed puck, signed by Veteran and Captain Ed Jovanovski. Check out our Panthers photo album for pictures of all the fun.
