OLV celebrates 175th anniversary all year Jennie Key

DELHI TWP. – Our Lady of Victory Church has a long history on the West Side, and it’s celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. The Roman Catholic Society of Delhi began meeting in 1834, in families’ homes. In the early 1840s, the group began meeting in a church under the name of St. Stephan. This eventually became Our Lady of Victory parish. OLV traces its roots to a log church built in 1842 on land donated by Adam Emge on Rapid Run Road near the current Stonebridge Drive. The Roman Catholic church also served as a school. Its initial location was hard to get to, so 10 years later, the log church was disassembled and moved to Neeb Road. Once the church was moved, parishioners realized they needed a bigger church. In 1853, the parish laid a cornerstone for a new brick church, which was dedicated in December of that year. The parish kept growing, and a new, larger church was built in 1908 with the first Masses said on Jan. 1, 1909, and this building served the parish community until 1963. It was razed in 1977. The east wing school addition was completed in 1963 and the upper level served as the temporary church until the present church was completed in 1980. In 1979, the cornerstone was laid for the church that now serves the parish at 810 Neeb Road. The first Mass was said in the current church on March 23, 1980.

DELHI TWP. – C.O. Harrison Elementary School students are learning about money and finances through a new program at the school. Third Grade Intervention Specialist Karen Singleton had the idea to bring the University of Cincinnati Economics Center’s Student Enterprise Program (StEP) to the school in the Oak Hills Local School District this year. The program, which is part of UC’s Economics Center, helps students earn StEP bucks to learn about economics, savings and interest. “The students get $5 in

each of the three categories if they arrive on time to school, come prepared with their materials and if they have good behavior that day,” Singleton said. All the students in grades 3, 4 and 5 are given an account ledger for each quarter to keep track of their finances. At the end of the quarter, the Economics Center bring a store to the school for students to spend the money they earn on school supplies and novelty items. “If they want to save, they can also do that and earn a little bit of interest. So they are also learning about how See HARRISON, Page 2A

School founded with parish The parish school grew with the church. The old log church was used as the school until 1898 when a brick school building was erected. That building still stands as the back half of the present old school building. In 1930, the front half of the “old” school building was completed and in 1960, the new school was completed. In 1992, the gym was renovated to double its capacity. Members of the athletic association along with many other volunteers kept the cost of this project to a minimum due to hours of sweat equity. The old school building was renovated with classrooms, library, See OLV, Page 2A
