Friends of Harmony Chorus Goes Extra Mile for Food 2 Families

BUFFALO, NY – It takes a special individual to dedicate their time and talents towards helping others, but for one group of local men it’s a tradition.

The Friends of Harmony Chorus is a small group of men who hail from various communities across Western New York and Canada, which is known for their Barbershop style of a cappella singing.

The group spends the majority of the year giving free performances throughout the community including free patriotic-themed concerts at the Naval Park in the summer and at area hospitals during the winter to bring the holiday cheer to those who need it most.

Lake Effect Snow Passes Through WNY

BUFFALO, NY - Well, it wasn't everything it was cracked up to be but we did see the first somewhat substantial snowfall of the season on Friday. Roads were deceptively slippery, however, and there were a number of fender benders and rollvovers this morning, though none resulting in significant injuries.

Assemblymember Gabryszak: Celebrate Responsibly this Holiday Season

As the holiday season approaches, thousands of New Yorkers will take to the roads to meet friends and family for celebrations. December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, and there are safety measures in place to curb impaired driving. While the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities in New York has fallen each year since 2007, there are still too many lives being lost or ruined because of drunk driving.1

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 2009 report, there were 321 alcohol-related traffic fatalities in New York, almost 28 percent of all the traffic fatalities from that year.1 Erie County is no exception to this problem, with 3,467 DWI arrests in 2008, and unfortunately, alcohol impairment isn’t the only issue.2 Drugs other than alcohol, such as marijuana and cocaine, are involved in about 18 percent of motor-vehicle driver deaths.3 The statistics demonstrate just how important proactive measures are.
