Henderson ready to build civic center

Henderson residents will soon have a civic center to call their own.

Tuesday morning, more than two dozen East Texans broke ground for what will be the new Henderson civic center.

Construction has already begun on the site of the 2,200 square foot facility. Civic center committee members raised more than a million and a half dollars just in private donations to build the center.

Construction is set to be complete by the first of 2010.
