Roger Lillie - MLCA Lake History
Roger Lillie worked very hard in the early seventies to form the Tait's Island Cottagers' Association. He visited every cottager on the Island to ask for a contribution of $300.00 over three years so that the center of the island, approximately 100 acres, could be purchased from the owner. This would preserve the core from subsequent development. The total purchase price was $30,000.00 so 100 cottagers had to agree. They did, and the Association was formed. The name was subsequently changed to the Tait's Island Community Association.
