Blue Jays Land at Gilmore


Where do blue jays fly for the winter? To Gilmore Community School of course!

It was an exciting start to the New Year when Toronto Blue Jays all-star first baseman Justin Smoak, pitchers Aaron Sanchez and Marco Estrada, and native Canadian and outfield prospect Dalton Pompey visited Gilmore the first week after winter break. The school assembly was emceed by Sportsnet’s Jamie Campbell, and the players enjoyed responding to the thoughtfully prepared student questions. Students and staff each received a Blue Jays baseball cap – and Principal Taylor was presented with a jersey and baseball equipment for the school. There just may be a former Gilmore student in the team’s future roster. Thank you Blue Jays for a memorable day.
