ALBURY’S SS&A Club is keeping the Anzac story close to home this year by honouring Border servicemen and women.
As a part of its commemorations, the club will host The Spirit of Anzac, where people can have dinner and listen to military accounts.
Lieutenant Colonel Michael Bigaila, from Bandiana’s Army Logistic Training Centre Bandiana, and Rowan Borella, the son of World War I Victoria Cross recipient Albert Borella, will host the night.
SS&A’s promotions manager Bob Harris said there would be a display of the 8/13 Light Horse Museum in the foyer.
“People who attend will hear Rowan Borella speak of the life and times of his dad,” Mr Harris said.
“They will hear about the celebration of Anzac Day and the role of the military in community by Colonel Bigaila.
“We wanted to focus on something local, and Albert Borella is the closest VC winner. It’s our event, not something you can celebrate elsewhere.”
About 50 people are expected to attend the event on Friday at 7pm.
The $45 tickets include a drink on arrival and two-course meal.
