Annual General Meeting 2nd November 2013

The 2013 Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday 2nd November 2013 at 10.30am at End Room Brisbane Square Library in George Street Brisbane Qld.

Formal proceedings were followed by an outstaning lunch of Lebanese food prepared by our Queensland members. Then our colleague David Joseph presented an historical performance titled Threads of Identity. David's presentation proved to be an exciting new way of prentinging history. Using biographical sketches of his grandfathers, he shows the history of Lebanese settlement in Australia and Australian history in general in a new light.

You can watch a version of David's presentation on YouTube

Hanna Family business van from Toowoomba
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.
