The Danbury Westerners are proud to announce that they will be having their 21st Annual Celebrity Breakfast on June 5th at the Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury, CT.  The Annual Celebrity Breakfast welcomes the 2015 Danbury Westerners to the greater Western Connecticut community.  In addition, the Westerners are thrilled to announce that former All Star and New York Mets World Series Champion Bud Harrelson will be the keynote speaker.

Paul Schaffer, President of the Danbury Westerners, commented, “Bud Harrelson has had a very distinguished career spanning fifty years in professional baseball.  Everyone remembers Buddy as a key contributor to the Miracle Mets World Series victory in 1969, and he followed that with successes as a coach, major league manager and owner of the Long Island Ducks.  Bud has witnessed a lot throughout his career and continues our tradition of exceptional speakers at our Breakfast.  I am certain our guests will enjoy listening to him.”


At the Breakfast the Westerners will once again present the annual Michael Seri Award in honor of the late Michael Seri, for perpetuating community partnerships, dedication and sportsmanship on behalf of the Danbury Westerners.  The first recipient in 2009 was Mr. Seri.  Other past honorees include Bart Busterna, Mary Ann Frede, Richard Reimold, Gene Eriquez, Charlie Coakley, Chris Arconti, Bill Pullan and Chris Miller.
