Meeting Time Change

The National Palestine Cultural Day planning committee will not meet tonight. The meeting day has changed to next Tuesday, August 12th at 6:00 PM in the Club Board Room. As a friendly reminder the Ramallah American Club of Jacksonville’s FIRST Palestine Cultural Awareness Day, is to be held on Friday, September 26, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.

The National Palestine Cultural Day has been approved by the AFRP, and it is time for us to unite together as one to tell our story, voice our existence through cultural activities, in hopes of educating the public about the Palestinian tragedy in the middle east.

This year’s event will provide Jacksonville’s Ramallah Club members and non-members with the opportunity to educate our community, while enjoying a night of Palestinian Activist panelists, music, poetry, food, and arts and crafts for our children. The entire event will be themed “Palestine” and we are asking for you to come dressed in your Palestinian Best!

The planning committee is hard at work to make this a fun and educational evening for all. If you are interested in helping by serving on this committee, please contact Amanda Mousa Gazaleh at 904.525.1648 or mousaevents@gmail.com.

Thank you all in advance for your support with this event. We are really looking forward to it!

Khalid Nassar Eadeh

Khalid Nassar Eadeh

Khalid Nassar Eadeh
May 12, 1971 – June 8, 2014

Khalid departed this earth unexpectedly and is now with his Heavenly Father. The son of Anwar and Salwa Eadeh, Khalid was raised in Jacksonville, Florida. His grandparents, Nassar and Bahia Eadeh, and Elias and Badia Tannous predeceased him. His wife Mary and son Andrew Anwar Eadeh survive Khalid.

Surviving are his parents Anwar and Salwa, brother Waleed and sister-in-law Jaime Eadeh, father and mother-in-law Mansour and Hanneh Mansour, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was also blessed with many friends who were like brothers.

Khalid graduated from Wolfson High School and worked for Comcast Cable for 14 years. Khalid was a great friend to many and had wonderful and infectious laugh. He loved life and enjoyed being with his close and extended family and friends. After Khalid fell asleep in the Lord, one common theme from his family and friends was how Khalid was always so happy and how he always had a smile on his face and that one can never forget his love and passion for the Philadelphia Eagles!

Mary, Andrew, Anwar, Salwa, Waleed, Jaime and the rest of the family would like to extend their thanks for the support the family and friends have provided during this difficult time. Family came from all over the country, Palestine, and the St. George Antiochian Church family was indeed a great support. His son Andrew will know the meaning of family through the support he receives over the years from this extended community. Khalid’s physical body has left but his memory will live on in those who have loved him. May God bless the entire family and may his memory be eternal! Khalid is now flying on the wings of an EAGLE!
