Af­ter weeks of cam­paign­ing to bring Johnathan Thurston to Gympie, the man him­self says, ‘How can I not go?’

De­tails of his visit and how you can be a part of an evening with JT

OPIN­ION: A pic­ture says a thou­sand words and the one above just shows my ex­cite­ment.

Af­ter find­ing out Johnathan Thurston was coming to Gympie, I only had about four hours’ sleep on Thurs­day night. It was one of the best feel­ings in the world, know­ing The Gympie Times’ hard work had paid off. Af­ter find­ing out the news of JT, my Dad was the first per­son I told he said: “Re­bec con­grats on get­ting Thurston to Gympie. But no sur­prise we knew you were go­ing to suc­ceed.” Find­ing out the ar­ti­cles I have writ­ten through­out the cam­paign have been read by the leg­endary man him­self is in­cred­i­ble. I doubt my ex­cite­ment will set­tle and now the countdown is on to his ap­pear­ance in Gympie on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 10. This will def­i­nitely be a ca­reer high­light. We got JT here.
