Rock Canyon bank had a great time this summer out in the dirt and dust with our neighbors. As a community bank, Rock Canyon Bank believes in the importance of supporting local traditions. This summer, we had the honor of taking part in 5 rodeos across the state of Utah.
Rodeos have long been part of the traditional Utah summer. Many of the state’s rodeos have been part of Utah culture for over 70 years, including the Strawberry Days Rodeo in Pleasant Grove which was established in 1921.
The Strawberry Days Rodeo, which is the longest continually running rodeo in Utah, was just one of the many rodeos Rock Canyon Bank helped sponsor this summer.
On June 3, 2017, Rock Canyon Bank also helped welcome the 2017 Wrangler Champions Challenge Rodeo, which features the PRCA’s best contestants competing on the sport’s best stock. During the one-night event, Rock Canyon Bank provided a cash prize to the winner of each competition category.
That same month, Rock Canyon was also an event sponsor for the bulls at the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo. The Lehi Round-Up Rodeo celebrated its 78th year of professional rodeo with the tagline “Join the Tradition.”
In July, Rock Canyon Bank participated in celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Fiesta Days Rodeo in Spanish Fork. The Spanish Fork Fiesta Days is a Gold Tour Rodeo and is the only rodeo in Utah to be inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. During this year’s 75th anniversary Fiesta Days Rodeo celebration, Rock Canyon Bank was the Event Winner Sponsor, providing cash awards to the winner in each competition.
In September, Rock Canyon Bank will also sponsor the Dixie Roundup in St. George as the Title Sponsor.
“It’s important to us to participate in these community events,” says Tod Monsen, CEO and President of Rock Canyon Bank. “We believe in supporting our local community and in helping bring people together—to strengthen the sense of community by participating in local traditions like these.”
