Sounds of the season: Friends of the Granite Statesmen Barbershop Chorus are trying to drum up interest in the group’s upcoming performance at Sacred Hearts Church in Bradford. The event will be Dec. 13 at 7 p.m., and the chorus hopes to fill 800 seats in the church. Man-about-town Dick LeBlond, a member of the group, is rallying locals to come to the event.

Ringing endorsement: Local pols are pitching in to ring the Salvation Army Bell during the Christmas season. Joining dozens of other Haverhill volunteers are city councilors Mike McGonagle and Bob Scatamacchia and School Committeeman Joe Bevilacqua. The Gazette’s own Tom Vartabedian also joined in.
