SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY SEP 15, 2020

Music Compound is committed to educating all year long, even when school is out for the summer. In addition to hosting an in-person summer camp, Music Compound launched the "Rock Your Summer Reading" initiative on June 1. Music Compound partnered with area businesses to provide special treats, one-of-a-kind experiences, and cool items as prizes; area children received prizes for every five books they read. All of the children who read at least 50 books were entered into a drawing; Pine View eighth-grader Zoe Harrell - who read more than 55 books (before she stopped counting) - was recently selected as the winner. Harrell has won a private party for up to 25 at Music Compound’s Cattlemen location. Highlights will include karaoke, pizza, a bounce house donated by Let’s Jump Rentals, and cool treats donated by Kona Ice. “All three of my kids participated in Rock Your Summer Reading and it definitely motivated them to keep picking up new books," said proud mom Lora Harrell. "The prizes gave them something to look forward to during this weird home-bound summer. They always love competing with one another but Zoe took an early lead and never relinquished it. ”
