In this video, meet the Moose and Michael Worry - longtime board member and friend of the DML and founder of Nuvation - who has graciously housed and transported our Moose over the past two decades.
Many of you are used to seeing the DML's beloved Moose mascot at our Canada Day celebrations, but since we can't be together in person this year and with our moose in need of repair and some fresh paint, we invite you to bring the moose to life through a colouring contest!
Calling artists of all ages!
The DML Moose Colouring Contest will offer awesome prizes over three categories, such as Groovy Gurl masks, Canadian toques, a Canadian wine pack and sponsored Stanford Live Concert Tickets to see Canadian artist, iskwē.
Wednesday, July 1 to Sunday, July 12, 2020
