Dinners may be enjoyed in our dining room or carried out.

Zonta International is a worldwide service organization working to improve the legal, political, economic, and professional status of women.

The Oswego club, founded in 1955, is well known for its annual Amelia Earhart Woman of Achievement dinner.

Additionally, it provides four scholarships, including the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship and scholarships for non-traditional students and Young Women in Public Affairs.

The members of the club, led by president Roxanne Gillen, perform many community service projects such as Holiday Adopt a Family, Adopt-a-Highway, Oswego Hospital bazaar, and contributions to Human Concerns and the Salvation Army.

The Guest Chef dinners are organized by the advisory board and offered bi-monthly to everyone in the community to help support the services of the Salvation Army throughout Oswego County.

Profits from the dinners help to provide meals from the Salvation Army kitchen and a three-day supply of groceries, as well as bread and pastries, from the pantry for families in need.

These and numerous other services are available to people around the county, beyond the cities of Fulton and Oswego.

Additional Guest Chef dinners are scheduled through the year.

Dinners will be provided by The American Foundry (chicken and biscuits) on October 8 and members of Minetto United Methodist Church (roast turkey) on November 12.

All dinners will be served at the Salvation Army Citadel.

If you would like to know more about the Salvation Army in Oswego County or offer your services as a volunteer, call 343-6491 or stop at the office at 73 W. Second St.

There are opportunities for individuals, families and organizations.
