In a double celebration last Thursday, October 7, the Mission Beach Historical Society celebrated both the launch of their new logo and their first anniversary.

 

Djiru Artist, Leonard Andy, designed the Society’s stunning new logo and Lavinia Letheby digitalised it for the Society.

 

The design depicts a Djiru shield with a Cassowary, Gunduy, which is the endangered, iconic, flightless bird living in the North Queensland rainforests and an important animal to the Djiru.

 

Trudy Tschui, Division 3 Councillor, and history enthusiast attended the event.

 

The Mission Beach Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, exhibiting, and interpreting all of Mission Beach’s history to ensure that future generations may fully see and appreciate the rich heritage of this community. 

 

New members are welcome and should please contact Valerie Boll, President, on 0448801195, or Ken Gray, Secretary, on 07 4068 7617.
