    Geneva Josephs, an Optimist

    Last updated 8 months ago

    CBF was pleased to make a donation to the Leisure City/Modello Optimist Club of Florida. The Optimist Club is a non-profit that sponsors five teams in the Miami Stream Youth Football League, including the well known Timberwolves. Players range in ages from five to fourteen and although the competition is extremely fierce, they have been awarded top prizes in recent years.

    You may recognize the woman accepting the check, Mrs. Geneva Josephs. As the Director of Optimist Club, she has been working hard for the youth in our community since 1998. She started out taking neighborhood children to school and football practices and decided she wanted to get more involved. She connected with the Optimist Club and has been running the concessions and sponsorships since then. Every game she cooks up a storm to raise money. She takes many of the players to practice at Modello Park and to after-school tutoring. She has counted on Community Bank for the last several years because their funding comes directly from donations. They are required to provide transportation for the players to and from the games, as well as pay for certified referees. These referees run $200 each and with 4 referees required per game, the costs go up quickly. The group continues to fundraise and seek corporate and individual sponsorships. If you would like to help support them, please contact Geneva Josephs at (305) 969-0061 or email her at

    Speed Networking

    Last updated 8 months ago

    No, it isn't speed DATING, it's for business owners. But it is a great opportunity to share personal info and connect with other locals. That's why we were excited to partner with the Key Largo Chamber when they offered to let us host a speed networking event at our office. The groups are purposely small, giving each business owner plenty of lime light and ample time to network with everyone attending. Sharon Smith, our Key Largo Manager, was very enthusiastic about the event, telling us "it is such a great idea, the people in the room really get to connect and get to know each other, it was a great opportunity for everyone." Thanks Key Largo Chamber, and keep us on your list of hosts!

    The SBI Queen in Action

    Last updated 8 months ago

    At CBF, we joking refer to Lisa Greer as the "SBI Queen." She earned the name because she is an expert at small business loans and has led our small business initiative to help customers grow their business. Recently the Homestead/Florida City Chamber of Commerce asked her to lend her expertise and be a guest speaker on US Small Business Administration Financing. Lisa explained the different programs offered by the Small Business Administration and why they would help a business owner. Lisa is always available as a resource to business owners, whether they are CBF customers or not. If you're interested in learning more, let us know!
