Although it may feel like the Cape is still mired in winter, spring is fast approaching. As the owners of the Chatham Wayside Inn and Wild Goose Tavern geared up for another busy season, they took a moment to appreciate the long-time, talented staff that have served locals and the community well, in some cases for decades. Among those recognized were:

Managing Partner Shane Coughlin, a 22-year veteran of the Wayside Inn.  A Barnstable High graduate, he now lives in Chatham with his wife and two daughters and is on the board of Monomoy Community Services.

Chief Financial Officer John Bresnahan, who has held this position for 12 years. He lives in Harwich with his wife, but you may see him on the ski slopes. Ryan Farrell, general manager of Wayside Properties, has lived on Cape for more than 20 years, landing in his current role about six years ago after owning his own business. He lives in Brewster with his wife and four children.  Jennifer Simmons - Inn Manager, the avid athlete is also a Barnstable High graduate and she lives there now with her husband and son.  Linda Kidd, the food and beverage manager at the Wild Goose Tavern. She has been working at the Goose for the past eight years and lives in Chatham with her daughter and grandson.  On her days off she can be found kayaking the estuaries of Chatham. The newest member of the team is Bob Signoriello executive chef at the Wild Goose Tavern.  He attended University of Pittsburgh, now lives in Cotuit and has a penchant for fine food and the Patriots. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
