Quincy, MA – Dependable Cleaners has announced recent winners in its Read to Ride summer reading contest, sponsored by Dependable Cleaners, The Patriot Ledger, Farina’s Bicycle Center, and Bikes Not Bombs. Runner up prizes provided by Feenan Financial, McDevitt Law Group, British Beer Company, Dependable Cleaners, and So Big Marketing.
The Week 5 winner was Jinnan W., from Brookline. Jinnan picked up her new bike from Farina’s Bicycle Center in Watertown, one of the Read to Ride program’s sponsors. Jinnan has already used her new bike on a recent trip to Bedford’s bike trails.
“Reading is Jinnan’s favorite hobby. She reads a lot,” says her father. “Sometimes too much,” he jokes. This summer, Jinnan played a lot of tennis and soccer. She also participated in swim lessons. When it comes to starting sixth grade, Jinnan’s father says she is most excited to “see all her friends at school, as well as continuing her Irish Step Dance classes.”
The 2019 Read to Ride summer reading program has concluded for the year. Running from May to August, Read to Ride is an annual summer reading program that encourages students aged 5-15 to read books during summer vacation for the chance to win a bike. We would like to thank all the students, schools, libraries and local organizations who participated and made this year a success. We appreciate the community support and are proud to have engaged over 350 students this year to read over 2,580 books!
