This municipality has two villages within our boundaries, the Village of Fairlight and the Village of Maryfield as well as the community of Ryerson.
The Village of Fairlight is still run by its own municipal council. In this little community with a population of 40 there are two businesses, Fairway Sales, a furniture store, and Home Sweet Home, a tea house/giftware store.
The Village of Maryfield is also run by its own municipal council. This is a community with a population of 348. There are a variety of businesses here as well. The Arlington Hotel has a great bar and restaurant; The Corner Store is the Village's only grocery store; as well as a post office. There is a medical clinic that is open 5 days a week, Sunrise Villa, an assisted living residence, low income housing, and ambulance services. There are two churches, the St. Andrew's Church and the Associated Gospel Church, both holding services each Sunday as well as other events throughout the year. For fun, there is a theatre that plays movies twice a weekend, a fitness centre, curling and skating ice which still hosts the local Rec hockey games. In late July, the Community hosts its annual Fair and Horse Show, bringing entries from many different communities.
The community of Ryerson was once a Hamlet within our municipality. In its day, it was home to a general store, which also housed the post office. This community also had a curling rink, a skating rink and the Bond School. Today, all that is left is one residence. The old store still stands empty on the north side of town adjacent to the train tracks, and even though the Bond School has been closed for years it is still the meeting place for picnics in the summer.
