Winnie Belliveau is a member of the Codiac Chords Chapter of Harmony Inc. from Moncton, NB. She joined in October 1979 on the advice of her father, who was a member of The Society. When she joined the chorus, the singing, the harmony, friendships, and adventure captured her completely.
Winnie was always the first one to volunteer for any job that needed to be done and served four terms as President but enjoyed her role as Membership Chair the most. She is the first one to greet new members with a smile and a warm hug and the last one to say goodnight! Although she has accomplished many things in her 40+ years as a Codiac Chord, one of her proudest accomplishments was serving on the Area 1 Council as Membership Coordinator where she created a manual, along with Jan Coffin, that was used by choruses in the Area to recruit new members and help them assimilate! She also worked alongside Pennie Barbour to introduce the C.A.R.E. package to Area 1 to help with membership recruitment and encouragement by doing seminars in Area 1.
Winnie joined the Judging Program in 1994 in the Presentation Category. While in the program she traveled, coached choruses and quartets, met some incredible people and made wonderful friends. Not only has she sung with the chorus, but she was also a member of a few quartets through the years, the last of which "Best Foot Fourward", competed in Area 1. She continues to sing with the Codiac Chords and plans to be "the last gal hanging around to hear that old barbershop sound".
