COLUMBIANA — The City of Columbiana proclaimed Sept. 11, 2022 Patricia L. Tingle Day at a dinner honoring the Firestone family members who came to Columbiana for the dedication of Harvey S. Firestone Park.

Tingle has served as a director of the Columbiana Community Foundation and president of the Columbiana Women’s Club, but her greatest contributions were achieved through the many projects of the Columbiana Restoration and Beautification Committee. From 2007 to 2017 the committee’s projects included the Town Square Corners, Town Square Clock, North End Sign and Bridge, Main Street Landscaping and Main Street Commons Pocket Park.

Since 2018, Tingle and the R & B Committee focused their efforts on the Harvey S. Firestone Park. The first project was Mirror Lake which was memorialized to her son David. The other park projects included Historic Legacy Trail, Pavilions, Pool and Pool House, Sports Court and Firestone Dog Park. The most significant project, Idabelle Firestone Gathering Place and Gardens, was the site of the dedication ceremony Sunday where Tingle announced that all the park projects were a gift from her late husband Bradford Tingle.
