The Circle of Friends Club at Laguna Beach High School had a few more friends than usual in attendance Monday. The lunchtime club, which offers students a way to interact, play games and spend time together - rather than eat alone or in insular groups - welcomed visitors from Tennoji High in Osaka, Japan. The guests were part of a group of 25 high schoolers at the campus shadowing students as part of a foreign exchange program. Senior Jackie McMahon, 18, and her sister Kate, 20, started the club when they were Thurston Middle School students about eight years ago as a place for special-needs kids to meet and get to know other students.
