Hartford – Danbury legislators gathered at the Capitol today to honor two local couples for their contributions to the Danbury community. Citations from the Connecticut General Assembly were presented to the couples during the annual Danbury Day celebration.

Bob and Lynn Taborsak and Bob and Judge Dianne Yamin were thanked for their considerable civic and charitable work by State Senator Michael McLachlan (R-24) and State Representatives David Arconti (D-109), William Duff (R-2), Michael Ferguson (R-138), Bob Godfrey (D-110), Stephen Harding (R-107), and Richard Smith (R-108).

Rep. Smith said Bob and Judge Dianne Yamin are active members of the Danbury Lion’s Club and St. Anthony Maronite Church, among other civic and charitable organizations. Judge Yamin has served as a Judge of Probate since 1990 and is a past President-Judge of Connecticut Probate Assembly. Bob Yamin is Corporation Counsel and Chief Legal Officer of the City of Danbury and a member of the Danbury Lebanon American Club.

“I have known both Bob and Judge Yamin for many years and have always been impressed by their dedicated service to our community, so I enjoyed this opportunity to call attention to their achievements,” said Rep. Smith.  “It was my honor to be a part of the celebration on Danbury Day at the State Capitol to recognize the Yamins as well as Bob and Lynn Taborsak for their admirable civic and charitable work.  We could use a lot more people like them.”
