Mary Ciappa, Conlee Shannon and Eugene Batrack of The American Foundry will be providing the Guest Chef Dinner at The Salvation Army on October 8.

The Guest Chef dinners are organized by the Advisory Board and offered to the community to raise funds to support the services of the Army throughout Oswego County. There is ample parking and the building is fully accessible. Dinners may be enjoyed in our dining room or carried out.

The Foundry, as it’s known locally, is owned and operated by the Ciappa family, lifelong Oswego residents who have generations of experience in the food and special events business. They and their staff are known for critically acclaimed food and for handling each event with professionalism, care and neighborly warmth that is a trademark of this close-knit family.

They specialize in public and private gatherings including weddings, receptions, fundraisers, public concerts and other special events.

The next and final Guest Chef dinner for this year will be provided by members of the Minetto United Methodist Church on November 12 and will be a complete roast turkey dinner.

There will soon be opportunities for individuals and groups to stand with the Christmas kettles.

Call 343-6491 between 1 and 4 p.m. to volunteer.

Major James Purvis said, “The income from our dinners is a very significant part of the support of the services the Army provides to people in need throughout our county. We thank the people, businesses, and organizations of Oswego County for their support of The Salvation Army.”

The Oswego County Salvation Army Corps recently completed its first year of service, having been formed through the joining of the former Fulton and Oswego Corps and several Service Units in other parts of the County.

Fresh-cooked meals are served and food pantries are available in both Fulton and Oswego and many other services are provided to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County.

Worship services are held at the Oswego location.

The corps is under the leadership of Majors James and Kathryn Purvis.

Information about The Salvation Army or about serving as a volunteer is available at 343-6491 between 1 and 4 p.m., or at the office at 73 W. Second St., Oswego.
