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 annual Memorial Day Observance hosted by the Beirut Memorial Chapter 64 will be held on Monday, May 25 at 11am.

The event will take place at the Coastal Carolina Veterans Cemetery and although being closed to the public this year, it will be streamed live on g10tv.org as well as the Jacksonville North Carolina Government Facebook Page.

The observance includes the tradition of reading the names of fallen shipmates since the last Memorial Day and honors to all those who have passed in service to their country.

Small group tours of the Lejeune Memorial Gardens will also take place as well, weather permitting. For more details, go to the Events Page on VisitJacksonvilleNC.com
