As we approach the 93rd anniversary of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club, we not only look back at the month that was, but we look back to the club's founding and to the creation of our longtime home, Friendship Auditorium, through historic and moving audio.

Much as the Breakfast Club cherishes its traditions, from time to time, things do change. One such change in tradition occurred this past month and we celebrate that change through poignant and delightful clips.

Club chaplain Reverend Barbara Adams takes us down the path that leads to our continuing "Adventures in Friendship".
