The dinner has been planned and will be cooked by Michael Cali, Springside’s food service manager and executive chef. It will include chicken cordon bleu, loaded mashed potatoes, corn O’Brien, and tossed salad, along with desserts and beverages provided by members of the Advisory Board. The dinner will be at the Salvation Army Center for Worship and Service, 73 West Second Street, Oswego.
Future Guest Chef Dinners this year will be provided through the generosity of The American Foundry on June 4, Zonta Club of Oswego on September 10, the Press Box on a date TBA in October, and Canale’s Restaurant on November 12.
Springside at Seneca Hill is the unique and upscale retirement community of Oswego Health. It is for adults, age 62 and older, and features a warm and caring environment with services and support programs designed to serve the needs and preferences of independent seniors. Housing options include one- and two-bedroom apartments in a congregate building, and one-story duplex-style homes and single unit cottages, featuring two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, garage and other amenities. Congregate living offers the fullest possibilities of independent living by providing private apartments along with publicly shared space for daily restaurant-style dining under the supervision of Chef Michael Cali, as well as social, recreational, and educational activities. The duplex homes and cottages include maintenance-free services and access to the activities of the congregate building.
The Guest Chef Dinners are organized by the Salvation Army Advisory Board and offered to the community to raise funds for fresh-cooked meals in both Fulton and Oswego and other services that are provided to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County. The food is donated, so all receipts go to the work of the Army.
