Cooke’s Seafood of Hyannis: A Proud Community Partner to Latham Centers
You heard it last week on our blog and social media, as well as via local press – on November 23rd, 2016, Cooke’s Seafood in Hyannis hosted a plethora of customers, and donated 20% of sales to support the student and adult residents at Latham Centers. During this season of Thanks and Appreciation, we say thank you to YOU, Cooke’s, for forming a new relationship with Latham Centers. In the above photo, family member Paul Chatelain stands in front of the Latham Centers sign with Latham’s Director of Development, Katrina Fryklund.
During the holiday season, Latham’s greatest needs are fitness programs and equipment to be used throughout the winter months, art and theater programs to express creativity and learn social skills, and the Angel Fund gift drive to allow all students the ability to appreciate the holidays. During this time of giving, Latham Centers thanks Cooke’s Seafood, Hyannis, for their generosity.
ABOUT COOKE’S SEAFOOD
Cooke’s Seafood in Hyannis is now owned and operated by the family that started the restaurant in 1977. Founded by two brothers, Jim and Connie Haidas (whose parents started the Kream ‘N Kone in 1953), Cooke’s Seafood was created to serve the highest quality, freshest seafood available in a clean and comfortable setting.
The next generation of Haidas brothers, Van and Michael, continue their family’s tradition. In working directly with their parents, the Haidas brothers learned the value of hard work and the importance of maintaining the highest standards. Van and Michael used these important lessons when establishing a restaurant of their own in 2014 — the knack on Route 6A in Orleans.
While the essence of Cooke’s remains the same, the Haidas brothers have focused on elevating the quality of the sandwiches, side dishes, salads, and ice cream to match the quality of their fresh seafood dishes.
