By Melinda Larke - Cherry Valley Macaroni Kid September 10, 2021

Welcome to our 2021 Fall Fun Guide sponsored by Duvall Family Dental and The Goddard School of Monroe. This guide will direct you to the local pumpkin patches, local fall festivals, Halloween events, and even give you great ideas for fall recipes and crafts. I will be updating this list with more events over the next few months so make sure to check back often so you don’t miss out! I also do my best to check the events for accuracy before posting them but things can and do change so please verify the information before you head out. I have included the links to the businesses to make it easier for you!

First, I would like to thank Duvall Family Dental and The Goddard School of Monroe for sponsoring this guide!  They help make it possible for this guide to be written and published; helping you to find your family fun!

The Goddard School®, a nationally acclaimed early childhood education franchise, is coming to Monroe, WA. As a dad with entrepreneurial drive, Haresh Khatwani, on-site owner of the School, saw a need in the Monroe community for a high-quality early childhood education program that provides a play-based learning experience in a nurturing environment.  “Our goal is to create a sense of purpose for myself, my family and know that I opened a business to help play a role in the social and academic success of children,” Haresh said.
