City of Port Moody Recreation


TheV3H.com brings you the latest news and events in the Tri-Cities. If it’s happening in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore or Belcarra, we’ll do our best to tell you about it.

Why the name? It’s the postal code prefix for Port Moody, Anmore, and Belcarra, BC. We’re creating a place online to find information and things to do in Port Moody and throughout the Tri-Cities. This is our way of getting to know all of you who make Port Moody and the Tri-Cities such a great place to live and raise a family.

Who We Are


Jon Strocel TheV3H.com Jon Strocel worked in community TV in the Fraser Valley way back in the olden days, also known as the 1990s. The best part of the job was meeting lots of cool and interesting people. Upon moving to the Tri-Cities he really missed having that connection with the neat people who make a place home. Luckily with blogs and social media, you don’t need a TV station anymore to connect. Jon is also the owner of upNext Media, a video and media production company. Follow him on Twitter: @jstrocel.


Amber Strocel started blogging at Strocel.com in 2003 when she and her husband bought their house in Coquitlam. She writes about parenting, going green and living with intention. Canadian Living listed her its March, 2011 blog of the month, and SweetMama named her to its 20 Mom Blogs We Love. She’s also currently pursuing her goal of going back to school to get her teaching degree. You can follow her on Instagram at @AmberStrocel.


amanda maxwell Amanda Maxwell describes herself as a mixed media artist and writer, a stay-at-home mum, a scientist, an expat trailing spouse and a digital space explorer. She’s been blogging about combining midlife parenting with returning to school/work – in, around and in spite of her family – from her Port Moody home since 2006, and running the Blackberry Artist’s Society social media network since 2010. You can find her on Twitter where she’s @afmaxwell, or check out her adventures in creativity at pomomamadesign.com.
