On behalf of myself, our staff, and the Board of Trustees of Friends of Panthertown, we thank you for your support and share our deepest sympathies and condolences with Tom West's family and friends.
Tom was a dedicated volunteer in Panthertown who served on the Friends of Panthertown Board of Trustees from 2012 to 2017.
Tom and Nancy have been outstanding supporting members of Friends of Panthertown for many years. We are grateful for their dedication.
Panthertown Valley is a treasured 6,311-acre backcountry recreation area located on Nantahala National Forest in western North Carolina.
Our mission is to work in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service to conserve this outstanding natural resource while improving the quality and experience of recreational opportunities in Panthertown.
We protect and maintain this special place. Our dedicated volunteers and staff have contributed thousands of hours of their love and hard work caring for 30 miles of public trails for the benefit of all who visit.
Your generous tax-deductible donation will directly support our conservation and stewardship activities in Panthertown Valley.
You will be emailed a tax receipt for your donation and an acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to Nancy West.
Tom will forever be in our hearts.
