Red Rock Canyon School’s 44th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner was a huge success full of food, family, friends, and thanks for being together with people from around the community who care for each other and serve each other at this special time of year.
Thanksgiving at Red Rock Canyon School is a tradition that goes back 44 years – a tradition that family members, school employees and the entire community is proud of.
We are so thankful that so many people joined us for Thanksgiving this year. We love to see so many people from many walks of life getting together to celebrate the blessings we each receive – family, health, loved ones, peace and community.
We look forward to another chance to get together for Thanksgiving next year.
It has been a tradition started by our founder Frank Habibian over 40 years ago.
Each year it only gets bigger and better! In 2013 we had over 3,000 people join us for the annual event which gives us and our students a chance to give thanks by serving our community.
We love how Thanksgiving in this setting brings so many people from different walks of life together to enjoy great food and spend some time in reflection of what is most important – people in our lives, family, friends and community.
Each year we prepare over 200 turkeys and more than 250 pies of every kind for days leading up to the big day. Community members come out to help with their time and donations of food and funds to help make the dinner a success each year.
At Red Rock Canyon School our students have the opportunity to make their musical dreams a reality. In our on-campus recording studio, students go through the process of writing, recording, and publishing their own music under the guidance of our producer Alan Shalby. “For most people, picking up an instrument and playing it releases a lot of tension and anxiety, it relaxes them. It gives you a sense of self worth if you’re a song writer.”
Through two courses offered at Red Rock, Recording Engineering and Songwriting, students have access to instruments, recording equipment, a sound board, and a mixing board. They are given the tools to find their voices and shape their vision throughout the creative process. Some of our students even opt to create their own music videos! As a final product, students lay down their tracks on compilation CDs which come out about every three months.
