The Castlewood Senior Living Celebrates Juneteenth with Employees and Residents

One of Arrow Senior Living’s Core Values is “I consistently and firmly advocate for fairness.”  This value was born of a belief in the power of a diverse community of people working together and a desire to celebrate our unique differences. Arrow prides itself in always striving for the common goal of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At The Castlewood Senior Living, we stand firmly in the belief that, regardless of individual differences, we all deserve to thrive in a space that values the work we do and the worth of everyone. Our goal is to create a culture that employees can rely on to be equitable and fair. So, to honor that goal, during the week leading up to June 19, 2022, we will be celebrating the Federal Holiday of Juneteenth with our employees and residents.

Juneteenth marks the day when federal troops arrive in Galveston, Texas, the last corner of the United States, to ensure all enslaved people are freed. Today, Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States. To celebrate, we will honor a black-owned business in our local area on June 15th. Thursday, June 16th we plan to provide education to our employees as well as residents. On Friday, June 17th, during our Happy Hour, we will wear our Juneteenth shirts while helping serve refreshments and snacks to our residents. Saturday will be extra special with a community carnival and car show. We plan to pass out bracelets to staff and visitors. And finally, on June 19th we will be celebrating with our Father’s Day brunch. We will be providing education as well as extra special food.
