2016 Annual Gala and Exhibition - 14 October 2016

Up until 2015, the Toula Museum of Australia Incorporated held regular Temporary Exhibitions, on a regular basis, at its then Premises, at 309 Pitt Street, Sydney. 
 
In early 2016, it was resolved that Future Temporary Exhibitions of the Museum would be held on an Annual Basis and incorporated into the Annual Gala Dinner, held each year, at the Annual gala Dinner. 
 
In the Year 2016, the Annual Gala dinner was held at the Grande royal Reception Lounge, at 51 South Street, Granville. 
 
Members of the Australian Public were invited to the event, which was conducted in the presence of His Excellency, the learned Dr Hardwick, Curatorial Director of the Museum. 
 
The event serves as an opportunity for Members of the Museum, members of the Australian Public and other friends of the Toula Museum of Australia Incorporated, to unite and celebrate the cultural, historical and scientific importance and significance of the Village of Toula, the country of Lebanon and of greater Phoenician history. 
 
One of the highlights of the 2016 Annual Gala dinner was an amazing hand-painted artwork of St Assia, the Patron St of the Village of Toula, Lebanon, painted by and contributed to the Museum by Danielle Ayoub.  A photograph and an extract of from a Facebook script relating to this significant item, is shown here.  
 
In addition, at the 2016 Annual Gala Exhibition, another highlight was the Hand-painted sculpture of St Assia, which is also shown below. 
 
At the Annual Gala dinner, persons in attendance also watched Photographic and Videographic displays of the Village of Toula, as well as enjoyed Arabic Poetry and Music and associated Folkloric dancing. 
 
The event was a major success.
