The Anderson County Democratic Party celebrated the grand opening of its headquarters at 136 South Illinois Avenue with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, a press release said. The headquarters are in the former Polaris Travel Building.
After the ribbon cutting, there was a watch party for the historic acceptance speech of Hillary Clinton, the press release said.
