This Month's Feature Members
Who: VERACIS Meditation & Wellness Centre
What: A place where meditation, yoga, holistic therapies, and retreats combine with herbal teas and community for a true spirit, mind and body experience.
Where: 86 Moody Street, Port Moody
We are a non-religious business founded in 2000 with a vision to make meditation easy to learn. We meditate sitting in chairs and our meditations are guided – something an active ‘western’ mind appreciates.
Veracis® Meditation teaches you effective ways to start living life with focused calm immediately. Our mind, emotions, and body learn to relax. With awareness we make conscious, healthy choices and our life changes for the better. Productivity increases, stress reduces and we are generally happier.

Who: The Giggle Dam
What: The best kept entertainment secret in the Lower Mainland.
Where: 2616 Shaughnessy Street, Port Coquitlam
For 12 years, ‘The DAM’ has been the best kept entertainment secret in the Lower Mainland. Think of a mind-blowing, 4-hour blend of politically incorrect, interactive, live musical comedy with an eight-piece live show band and live Vegas-worthy celebrity impersonations… with dinner! We’re different. We’re the only one. And we have way too much fun!
The Giggle Dam was opened in 2001 by two former entertainers, Mark Freibe & Sheila Sharma (husband and wife) from Maz & Me’s dinner theatre in Poco. They loved what they did and, with a hope and a prayer, opened the Dam when Maz & Me’s closed down. The Tri-Cities has been home to both theatres since 1988 and we get a wonderful cross section of customers from the local area, the Fraser Valley, and the Lower Mainland.
Our best kept secret is the Giggle Dam itself. We break down the ‘fourth wall’. It’s completely interactive. We meet every person in the building before the show and INCLUDE our audience. Every cast member is a triple threat, actor, singer, musician, comedian, dancer etc. and the talent is worthy of any stage. People seem to underestimate that because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “I can’t believe THIS is in Poco”.
We hope to see you at The DAM soon, or on our DAM cruise! Interested? Check out our website to learn more. damcruise.ca
