Jack Aborn served as a key member of the Bay State Games Archery committee since the sport was added to the Bay State Games in the early 1990’s. Jack was a dedicated worker and strong supporter of the Bay State Games. He also was a strong proponent of youth participation in sport especially the sport of Archery.
