St. Martin celebrating 100 years By Kurt Backscheider St. Martin of Tours in Cheviot invites parishioners and community members to help the church kick-off the celebration of its 100th anniversary. The parish’s yearlong centennial celebration begins Thursday, Nov. 11, which is the feast day of St. Martin of Tours. Members of the church family and community will gather at 6:15 p.m. for a procession, proclamation and evening prayer. “It’s a very exciting time for our parish,” said Debbie Brunst, a St. Martin parishioner for nearly 30 years. She said parishioners will carry handmade lanterns as they walk in a procession down St. Martin’s Place, across Carson Avenue and up Harding Avenue.

Brunst said the dinner is for adults only and will take place at The Woodlands in Whitewater Township.

Early parishioners or their descendants who have stories to tell are encouraged to share as well. Brunst said other annual church events such as the Easter egg hunt, parish picnic, summer festival and Oktoberfest celebration will take on a centennial theme as well this year. St. Martin is also selling special spirit wear items, a commemorative ornament and limited edition Christmas cards to mark the 100th anniversary, she said. “The parishioners love it,” she said. “People are really excited.” To find out more about helping St. Martin celebrate its centennial, call the parish office at 661-2000.

Cincinnati-based Frisch’s Restaurants Inc. has purchased the Perkins restaurant property on North Bend Road at Interstate 74 in Green Township, and will build a Frisch’s Big Boy on the site. Karen Maier, vice president of marketing for Frisch’s, said Frisch’s closed on the property on Sunday, Oct. 31, which was one day before Perkins closed its doors for good. A sign on the restaurant’s front door notifies guests the location is closed for business and directs them to the Perkins restaurant on Westbourne Drive in Green Township. A message left at Perkins’ corporate office in Memphis, Tenn., was not returned. Maier said Frisch’s plans to raze the Perkins building, and is scheduled to begin construction on a new Frisch’s restaurant in early March 2011. “That would give us an opening date at the end of June 2011, depending on the weather,” she said. She said the new restaurant will be a typical Frisch’s Big Boy, complete with a breakfast bar, salad bar and drive-through lane. Frisch’s is interested in opening a new store in Monfort Heights because it will allow them to better serve the northern portion of the West Side, she said. “We think it’s a great location,” Maier said. “We think there is an opportunity there. It’s right off I-74, and there is a huge growth area out there.” Mercy Health Partners is building a new hospital and medical office complex just down the road. Maier said another reason Frisch’s is opening a new store is because residents on the West Side have been very loyal to Frisch’s over the years, and they wanted to offer more convenience for their West Side customers. “We really look forward to building out there,” she said.

Following the procession, she said folks will gather on the front steps of the church to hear music director Angela Birkhead-Flight sing a proclamation, and watch as banners marking the historic milestone are spotlighted. “I think it’s going to be neat,” Brunst said, “especially the visual aspect of seeing everyone carrying their lanterns.” After the proclamation, she said, at 7 p.m. everyone will move inside the church for a vesper service, which is an evening worship service featuring psalms and prayer. She said as part of the evening service, a re-enactment of St. Martin’s encounter with a beggar, will be performed on the altar steps. As a soldier on garrison duty, St. Martin saw a nearly naked beggar out in the freezing cold. According to the story, St. Martin used his sword to slash his own cloak in two and handed one half to the freezing man. Refreshments, including an ice cream social, will be available in Father Mick Hall following the Vesper service. Brunst said Thursday’s procession is the first of many events commemorating the centennial, which is adopting the motto, “A Century of Caring – A Legacy of Faith.” “We’re going to hit the ground running after this kick-off celebration,” she said. “We have special events planned throughout the year. We’re going to have at least one event each month.” The parish is hosting a centen- 2011 Nissan Altima 0% APR A Family Tradition Since 1980 KURT BACKSCHEIDER/STAFF 1000 TOTAL CASH BACK A Family Tradition Since 1980 8680 Colerain Ave. • 513-385-1400 *0% apr is 36 monthly payments of $27.78 per $1000 borrowed or 60 monthly payments of $16.67 per $1000 borrowed.
