JACKSONVILLE - A family of refugees who arrived here in recent days will not be staying long-term, but were welcomed with open arms. The local volunteer group who helped get them settled will now prepare to welcome another family in the coming months, and will hold a film screening next week as a way to connect with the community about refugee resettlement.
