Member Appreciation Month 2020

Like you, The Rockwell team feels gratitude for everyone on the front lines; for the friends, family and colleagues that we’re privileged to know and care about; for the businesses and organizations we love that are helping us maintain a semblance of old routines or navigate new ones; and for the resilience of our neighborhoods and communities.

We’re also deeply thankful for our members. In recognition of your ongoing support and loyalty, May is Membership Month!

Although our doors are still closed and our recognition looks a little different this year, we’re excited to offer some members-only digital programs as small tokens of our appreciation (as well as some additional benefits you can take advantage of any time this year).
