Kitty & Eva, Owners of Bamboo Asian House

Surely, Kitty and Eva are as busy as two co-owners can be at the beginning of lunchtime, in a town where their Asian menu has a strong word-of-mouth following, which brings along with it, repeat customers happy to eat at Bamboo several times a week. Sunny and with a relaxed demeanor, the two ladies work while they talk, but aren’t too busy to hug a longtime customer.

“All we do is from our hearts,” Kitty says, smiling. “We don’t just have a business, and it’s not just customers, we make friends.”

The Onslow Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a very special place, particularly today, National Vietnam Veterans Day. A notable feature of the five elements that make up the memorial is The Dome. It was completed in March of 2014 and is the finishing piece of the memorial. You will see the unofficial words from Taps inscribed around it.
