Scope and content

"If you've ever driven through the intersection of the 9th line and the 5th sideroad in West Gwillimbury and wondered just exactly where you were, there's no need to worry any more. On Monday the members of the Women's Institute of Fisher's Corners just west of Highway 400, saw their sign go up on the northwest corner of the intersection, simply reading "Welcome to Fisher's Corners." To most of the community's residents, the area has always been known as Fisher's Corners. Now, with a little help from the Women's Institute and Judy Rupke, who painted the sign, anyone travelling through will be reminded of where they are. A story, which dates back several years, tells of residents named Fisher living on the four corners of the intersection. Over the years, the name of Fisher's Corners caught on."
