CFCI Celebrates 30 Years as a Member of Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce!
Thank you to the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce for braving a very untimely, post-storm power outage earlier this week to help celebrate CFCI's 30th anniversary as a Chamber member!
We are thrilled to have been a Chamber member for the last 30 years and can’t wait to continue collaborating to serve the Peoria community!

Mark Roberts Visits Franklin Primary School for Principal Experience
CFCI CEO, Mark (a/k/a Principal Roberts), had a great time during his Principal Experience at Franklin Primary School! He was able to greet students as they came in for the day, help with announcements, and check out different classrooms. It was a fantastic morning! Stay tuned for a video recap with “Principal Roberts” in the coming days!

A Hero Among Us!
We recently had a visit from Peoria Public Schools Foundation to surprise our very own Sarah Fletcher with their Hero Award for continually going above and beyond to help local organizations in our community, including the School District!
We know how amazing Sarah is and we love to see her recognized for all her hard work! Congratulations, Sarah!
We think you are a hero, too!
