Rock Creek 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 Rock Creek 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 black-owned businesses by bringing items and goods from those businesses. We will also educate our residents and community about history and historical sites. For Friday Happy Hour, we will have a community celebration in the remembrance of Juneteenth.
