A 21-year tradition continued in Oshkosh Monday night, with the first of five parades around the city to collect donations for the Salvation Army. “We go around with the fire trucks and pick up food and toys for the citizens of Oshkosh,” Firefighter Brian Blaha of the Oshkosh Fire Department explained. The parade included a vintage fire truck and a Salvation Army truck, used to collect donations. Michael Zimmer, a resident in the neighborhood covered Monday night, said he’s been donating to the drive since it first began. “They’ve been coming by the house every year, so it’s great,” he said. “It’s easy for me.” It’s that easy for any of the residents who live along the four to six-mile routes covered by the parade, helping the fire department gather goods to donate to the area’s needy.
