VITALIA Senior Residences at Strongsville 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 Vitalia Senior Residences at Strongsville, 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 be doing the following:

Wednesday, June 15th – We will be honoring black-owned businesses.

Thursday, June 16th – We will provide transportation to historical sites for our residents.

Friday, June 17th – Food and entertainment at Happy Hour for all residents and staff will be provided, including non-alcoholic beverages.

Saturday, June 18th – What Juneteenth looks like to you, an educational and learning session, will be presented.

Sunday, June 19th – A huge celebration for all residents and staff will be held.
