White, Dawson, and Habersham County Parks & Recreation Departments have announced the cancellation of its 2023 Opening Day for baseball and softball, set for this Saturday, March 18.

Habersham County Parks & Recreation Department Director Brooke Whitmire said, “With the forecasted weather Friday and low temperatures on Saturday, we feel it is the best decision. We’ve also confirmed with neighboring counties, White and Dawson so far, that they too have canceled activities for the same reasons.”

Habersham County Public Information Officer Rob Moore stated in an email that the parks and recreation department will instead plan an end-of-season celebration of some sort and reschedule games.

Pictures will be moved inside the Gray Gym and will proceed at the originally scheduled time.
