    Adventure of Trebleclef, the Music-Loving Monkey

    Trebleclef wanted to support Locke Street so he visited many locations in the community.

    He attended the #LoveLockeStreet fundraiser at the Rock on Locke. The next day, he did the Walk on Locke and visited all the amazing shops. He also popped in to visit our wonderful sponsor Judy Marsales Real Estate.
