SOCIETY BOOKMARKS & QR CODES
The Society has produced three different bookmarks and a copy of each will be posted to members with the next Newsletter, No. 43. The bookmarks are designed to be handed out at events and functions such as history and genealogical fairs in order to publicise the work of the Society.
As well as contact details, the bookmarks also include a Quick Response (QR) code which can be scanned by an app on a smartphone and which will take you directly to our web page.
QR codes are proving to be invaluable marketing tools and should make access to the Society’s activities easier.
The bookmarks were designed and produced by a professional design team. Hope you enjoy them!

This exciting new work explores the history of the Lebanese community who settled in and around the Queensland city of Toowoomba. Many Lebanese immigrants had settled in the area from the late 19th century and interviews with their 2nd and 3rd generation descenants show their deep attachment to the place their parents and grandparents chose to settle. The "Lebanese" are a significant presence in the area to which they have made a major contribution.
