Les Cheneaux Islands Association Vision Statement
Founded in 1922, the Les Cheneaux Islands Association (LCIA) offers all who
care about the Les Cheneaux area (summer visitors, year around residents, the
customer, and the businessman alike) an opportunity to work together for the
betterment of our community.
The Association pledges a comprehensive concern with all matters that effect
the area harbor facilities, waste disposal, zoning, water quality, channel
dredging, buoy placement (our own and those of the Coast Guard), boating
safety, fish and game regulation, traffic control, fire safety, property protection,
and off season inspection of seasonal properties. These are not the concerns of
any single, small, self-interested group; they are matters pertinent to all of us.
Too, the Association functions as a liaison between its members and village,
township, county, state and federal government as well as the Department of
Natural Resources and the Coast Guard thus offering the individual member a
far greater voice than he would otherwise have.
Please, therefore, remember what we are and tell a friend who might not already
know. We work to benefit everyone who loves Les Cheneaux.
E. James Mertaugh, President, Summer 1980
