ROUNDUP OF THE 2012 FAIR
Yet again the 2012 Ormeau Fair was a resounding success. We were fortunate to have great weather
and our "Mini Ekka" has become one of the year's major attractions of the Northern Gold Coast. We are going from
strength to strength in both the number of visitors and the number of events and stallholders. This has been
largely as a result of Norm Jessen's vision and hard work. Unfortunately Norm has moved away from the area and
though he will still be around to give advice and counsel he will not be as heavily involved in the event as
The Ormeau Fair is Ormeau Lions' major fund-raising event of the year and as a result of this
success we were able to increase our donations and disbursed nearly $40,000 to charities and local community
groups. In fact, since the start of the fair back in 2007 the Lions Club of Ormeau has made donations of over

weekend as we all enjoy the wonderful program of activities, stalls, competitions
and rides on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of August.
All funds raised are redistributed within the area, and I know you'll join me in
supporting the Lions who give so much to our growing community.

has grown beyond many people's wildest expectations and now provides a great deal of opportunity for exhibitors and
the Ormeau Lions Club to raise money for the local community. It truly is a
community effort with people from all age groups chipping in to help out to make the fair a memorable

Saturday night for many is the highlight of the show with Fireworks and a free movie session. Bring your deck chairs down and a warm blanket and
snuggle up and watch a movie on the big screen. What a great way to finish the day!
Building Strong Communities
The Ormeau fair has become a community institution that continues to grow rapidly
This year’s fair will be held on the weekend of 10 and 11 August at the Brien

A huge Thank You goes to the Sponsors and Exhibitors of the
fair as they provide so much support and financial backing to make this happen. Without their assistance the Ormeau
Fair simply wouldn't exist so its with a lot of gratitude the Ormeau Lion's Club says Thanks.
You can find out more About Us (Ormeau Lions Club) and if you
happen to see any of the Ormeau Lions Club green shirts walking around don't forget to say a big Thanks for making
the Fair possible. Without our fantastic volunteers putting in the extra hours,
raising money through Driver Reviver and Sausage Sizzles every weekend none
of this would be possible...
Come along and check out the Incredible RACQ Van
You have to see it to believe it!
Ormeau Fair 2013 will be bigger than ever and make sure you visit the RACQ Van. At 22 metres
long you'll be blown away with what it has inside. It's truly unbelievable. See it for yourself August 10-11 2013
and view the 2013 event program here.
Whilst its nice to recognise the people involved we want you to keep in mind the Ormeau Fair is
all about YOU. Have fun, spread the word and we'll continue to grow our 'mini ekka' into one
of the Gold Coast's premier Social activities.
