Bucksport to name pool in honor of former recreation director

BUCKSPORT — At the start of last week’s Town Council meeting, Town Manager Susan Lessard announced that the council had decided to name the municipal swimming pool after Bucksport’s recently retired recreation director.

Tim Emery held that post for 40 years, becoming a one-man town institution in the process.

“Tim has done a yeoman’s job to make sure everything got the attention it needed: his family and certainly his community,” said Lessard, who noted that public service can sometimes get in the way of other parts of one’s life.

Emery seemed to have struck a balance, as his family attended the meeting with him.
