Letter in support of Maria Flannery:

Many of you know 16 year old Alex Flannery who lives here in Hopkinton. Most of you also know 13 year old Morgan Flannery and have seen her
dribbling down the soccer field or have seen her bright smile walking down the halls of the Middle School. You probably even know dad Bill Flannery
from coaching many of our up and coming soccer stars, maybe even your children, over the years with HYS. Through HPTA events and soccer
sidelines, you probably know mom Maria Flannery too.
