$100K to Old Fort

As a non-profit, Friends of the Fonta Flora State Trail is able to accept donations from individuals and hold them until needed. That was the case for the $100,000 donation used for some of the match for the $330,000 PARTF grant the Town of Old Fort received. Shown is F3ST President Judge Bob Hunter presenting the donation check the Old Fort Mayor Hensley.

The remaining portion of the match will be cover by McDowell County ($100K), Town of Old Fort ($100K), MTA ($25K) and the community ($5K).
