Happy Thanksgiving! Read a message from our Chief Executive Officer, Jack Callison.
Dear Sunrise Family,
Thanksgivingis easily one of my favorite holidays of the year. It is a time to pause. And reflect. And count our many blessings in life. Unlike other holidays, it's not about hunting down the perfect gift. Rather, it is a time for families, friends, and relationships, both old and new. It's about slowing down from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Recalibrating. Recharging. And refocusing on what is important in life. It is a time for expressing gratitude; and indeed, we all have much to be grateful for.
Make no doubt about it. The events of last two years permanently changed our lives in profound ways. Many experienced loss, fear, and challenges that were previously unimaginable. However, as we continue to successfully emerge from the very real challenges we endured together, the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday season could not come at a more opportune time. As we look forward, there is indeed tremendous reason for Hope. Optimism. Genuine happiness. The Thanksgiving holiday this year represents a positive inflection point in so many ways. It is once again, a time for giving thanks.
This year, my personal list of blessings I am most thankful for include:
Finally, and most importantly, I want to express my heart felt gratitude to you, our more than 22,000 dedicated Sunrise team members. Please never forget the work you do daily matters in the lives of many. You are the reason Sunrise is such a Great Place to Work and Great Place to Live. Sunrise's culture is uniquely special and that will never change. You are Committed. Resilient. Compassionate. You live our values: Passion, Joy in Service, Stewardship, Respect, and Trust. You are Sunrise. For that, I am grateful.
From my family to yours, I wish you and your loved ones holiday blessings and a very heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving.
Jack R. Callison, Jr.
