The Restoration and Beautification Committee’s fundraising packet was sent out in March and donations have been accepted through April. Falling short of our goal of matching the Firestone family’s gifts of $225,000, we are opting to reach out to more of the community for support. Our original appeal was to 100 citizens, businesses and organizations. Having been approached by other citizens who want to be a part of this historic addition to the park, we will send the beautiful and informative “Legacy Trail Donation Packet” to other interested parties. The donation levels are $1000, $2500 and $5000. With each level, gifts for donors include a copy of the Columbiana Mural in the downtown Common, Restoration Red and White bottles of wine — made especially for the donation drive by the Vineyards at Pine Lake — and an exclusive copy of a new, soon-to-be-published book about the history of Firestone Park, “The Best Little Park in Ohio,” the title taken from how Harvey Firestone frequently described his park. Contributors names will also be placed on the entrance wall to the Legacy Trail, and an invitation will also be extended to contributors for the Memorial Dedication of the park at the completion of the project, a special event for donors only.
To receive a Legacy Trail Donation Packet, please call 330.482.9166 and leave your name and address and a packet will be mailed to you.
