GAINESVILLE - Hall County Human Resources Director Bill Moats recently received a volunteer award from the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association Seventh District for his work on the Forsyth County Slugfest Baseball Tournament. <br />
The Slugfest is an annual baseball tournament that raises money for local non-profits. <br />
Moats organized more than 250 teams and more than 3,000 players during the weekend of March 8-10. The yearly tournament has raised over $140,000 for charities in the area, including the Miracle Network, Northside Hospital, Children's Healthcare and the Special Olympics.
About three dozen businesses from White County and the surrounding area showcased their services and the products they provide during the 2016 White County Chamber of Commerce Business Expo held Thursday.
The Flowery Branch City Council gave first reading approval to a rezoning request for a 7.1-acre tract on East Main Street that could lead to the construction of a 60-unit multi-family senior housing affordable-living complex.
