Members of the advisory board will provide Italian bread and an assortment of desserts and beverages.

The Press Box has been pleasing Oswego palates for more than 29 years. According to Scanlon, daughter of Canale and manager, “We offer a wide assortment of pub-style menu items including burgers, paninis, wraps, entrees, grilled pizza, and salads, served up in a sports themed atmosphere.”

The restaurant, on two tiers, offers many large screen TVs and a lake view from the deck. Famous diners have included Steve Levy and Linda Cohen, ESPN anchors, who still come to the Press Box whenever they are in town, and George Pataki, former New York State governor.

The Guest Chef dinners are organized by the advisory board and offered bimonthly to everyone in the community to help support the services of The Salvation Army throughout Oswego County. The final dinner this year will be served on Election Day, November 4. Arrangements are under way.

The Oswego County Salvation Army Corps provides fresh-cooked meals five days each week in both Fulton and Oswego, groceries from its food pantries, and many other services to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County.
