Where are they now — Rosanne (Rubatino) Goulet

OK. I didn’t know Rosanne very well — but with a little help on married names of a few classmates that Kristi Holtgeerts Rosenberger was able to provide, I tracked her down — right here in Everett!

Turns out, Rose is quite active in the Everett Rotary — we know this from “The Log” — the newsletter of the Everett Rotary (and one that might have been designed by graduates of Bruce Burns’ “Tabloid Newspaper” mini-term class, from the looks of it!) that she was selected as President of the Chapter in 2006 — she took the reins on July 1 :

Particularly near and dear to my heart is the fact that Rose is a contributor to/supporter of the Everett Children’s Museum — while my Children’s Museum Days are over, my wife and I spent some very fond years organizing a similar non-profit museum over here in the Tri Cities, and I recall many a long night building exhibits, writing grants, and preparing for press conferences so our kids would have a fun place to play. Rose is also an active supporter of the Arts Council of Snohomish County as well as Catholic Community Services and Camp Fire (no wonder her fellow Rotary members selected her to be their leader!)
Rose graduated from Gonzaga in 1980, after spending her junior year in Florence, Italy and is working for the family business (Rubatino Refuse Removal).

Rose adds:

“I’m married to Larry Goulet and we have two sons; Denny 21, who will be a senior at Boston College (who just spent his junior year in Florence, Italy) and David 18, who will start his collegiate rowing career at UW in the fall.

I grew up in a Rotary household (my dad spent many years active in the Lynnwood Rotary) and know the sort of committment to public service that the organization embodies. Rose should be proud of being selected as a leader among leaders.
