The virtually unknown protectors and benefactors of Lake Merritt and Children's Fairyland (LMBC members actually founded Fairlyland!), the Club meets every Thursday from 7:00 - 8:30 a.m., where members and guests from the professional and business community gather to exchange greetings, network, and hear local, national or international speakers discuss topics of significance - today's economy, environment, culture, Oakland, and the world.
Given that past speakers have included local elected officials, most recently the Mayor of Oakland, as well as innovative, community leaders, the Project is proud to join this distinguished group.
"It was such a thrill to be invited speak, let alone present, after having heard so many amazing presentations at the Club," said Fearn, whose mother, Emmy Fearn, is a longtime member.
The Lake Merritt Breakfast Club was founded in 1933 to promote the benefits of fellowship and friendship, and to foster and create interest in - Lake Merritt and its surrounding Park. In 1948, the Club sponsored the creation of Children's Fairyland in Lakeside Park, and continues to provide financial support and volunteer labor for this world famous children's attraction.
