A longtime Waldoboro resident was honored May 17 by having the Annual Report dedicated to him.

Theodore "Ted" Wooster was surprised by office staff and administration at a brief ceremony where he was presented the report.

A man of many hats, Wooster currently serves on the town's Planning Board, and was selectman for 12 years. He also served on the Recycling Committee, the Broadband Internet Committee, and was one of the supporters of expanding rail service to the Midcoast.

After moving with his family to the area at an early age, Wooster grew up in the village and later owned and operated his father's pharmacy for 27 years. He was the third pharmacist in his family, graduating from the Massachusetts School of Pharmacy in Boston.

Wooster is a veteran, having served in Germany for three years with the Army. Together he and his wife, Betsy, have raised two children and enjoy two grandchildren.

The dedication, written by Jean Lawrence, describes Wooster as "a gentleman, veteran, responsible citizen, husband, parent, scholar, and friend."

"He is happy to share thoughts on whatever subject or book he has been reading or on a subject of your choosing," it goes on. "His heart and mind are still very much concerned with the betterment of his community which he has for many years loved and served."
