The Boulevard 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 Boulevard Senior Living Wentzville, 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 enjoy cupcakes from Cupcake Fetish, a black, female-owned business, in Maryland Heights, MO and educate our residents and team members with an educational Juneteenth history video. A Juneteenth-themed happy hour with hibiscus punch, collard greens, black-eyed peas, and sweet potatoes is planned. On June 19th we’ll celebrate with red velvet cake and strawberry soda.
