September 2019 Digital Moose Lounge Newsletter

A monthly newsletter from a fellow Canadian organization in the Bay Area.  We wanted to thank the DML for highlighting our annual Poppy Campaign in this newsletter.

Happy October, Bay Area Canadians! We have lots to look forward to including Thanksgiving, some Canadian bands, and events around the upcoming federal election back home! We also have a new blog post from board member Hugh Morgan that will help you with that pesky credit score.

How Can You Help
In the spirit of DML Canadians Doing Good, we have selected the Alameda County Community Food Bank as the beneficiary of our event. Support our joint effort in ending hunger and poverty in the community by bringing a non-perishable food item for donation or by making a small financial donation when you arrive.
2019 Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Campaign
Each year the Royal Canadian Legion conducts the Poppy Campaign, along with thousands of our members who volunteer from coast to coast to coast, to raise funds in support of Veterans and their families. The US Zone, Branch #25 (representing the San Francisco Bay area) is starting their 2019 poppy campaign this month. Poppies are distributed freely, but your generous donations are invaluable.  For more information or to find out where you can pick up a poppy, visit by their site here.
Tell Us a DML Story to Celebrate 20 Years!
In September 1999, a small group of Canadians in the Bay Area formed what is the Digital Moose Lounge today. This year, we are celebrating our 20th birthday! We are looking for original members and Board of Directors to help tell the story of DML in celebration. If you were part of the DML from 1999 to 2015 – like Helen, Mike and the Moose in the photo –  please send us an email at
