The HBA -- and all of Hopkinton -- was saddened by the passing of Mary Korbey, who lost her courageous battle with cancer on July 25, 2015. Mary (pictured at top left in the accompanying photo of the 2014 Grade 8 team she coached to a state championship) was a longtime coach and board member for the HBA who contributed greatly to the success of the program and touched many young lives in a tremendously positive manner. Even though all three of her children had graduated the program, and despite her health woes, Mary graciously agreed to remain as an HBA board member last year, and continued to provide invaluable insight and guidance. She will be greatly missed. If you would like to make a donation in her memory, checks may be sent to the Korbey Children Support Trust, c/o Middlesex Savings Bank, 10 Main Street, Hopkinton, MA 01748.
