ROCKLAND, Mass. (September 27, 2013) - Rockland Trust today announced Bourne resident Susan Coppenrath is the $2,500 grand prize winner of last month's "Living Local" Twitter promotion. Throughout the month of August, followers of the @RocklandTrust Twitter handle were asked to submit a picture of their community using the designated hash tag, #localcontest or #rocklandtrust to enter the promotion.

"The 'Living Local' Twitter campaign has helped us connect with our communities and learn more about the individuals within these areas," said Ralph Valente, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Rockland Trust. "At Rockland Trust, we believe in putting our customers first and making sure their voices are heard."

In response to a weekly prompt chosen by Rockland Trust, participants submitted pictures of what they believed best represents their communities.
