Jason Shi will be preparing sesame chicken with a delicious unique flavor, vegetable lo mein with angel hair pasta, pan fried chicken Wonton and apple Wonton.

Advisory board members will provide beverages, tossed salad and assorted desserts.

Shi acquired his skills working in his father’s Chinese restaurant in Albany.

Graduates of SUNY Oswego, Shi with a degree in economics does the cooking, and his wife, Cindy He, with an MBA degree, handles the business affairs.

The couple has owned and operated The Wonton House next door to Rudy’s since 2009.

They will re-open on Aug. 24 for the college year and have added a second business, Wonzones Calzones, at the same location. They specialize in using fresh ingredients and offer delivery in the city and town of Oswego.

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

The dinner will provide an opportunity to meet our new corps officers, Majors James and Kathryn Purvis.

The former Fulton and Oswego Salvation Army corps have recently been combined in a new Oswego County Corps under the leadership of two corps officers.

Current programs and services will continue to be offered in both communities.

New services may be added as resources permit and efforts are being made to address needs in previously underserved areas of Oswego County.

Anyone wishing to know more about the Salvation Army or offer volunteer service may call 343-6491 or stop at the office at 73 W. Second St.

Questions or comments for the board may be directed to Paul Santore, chairman, at 343-8273.

There are opportunities throughout the year for individuals, families, and organizations, but especially to stand with the familiar kettles at Christmastime.
