The Venice-Nokomis Woman's Club, one of the oldest not-for-profit civic organizations in the State of Florida, was founded in 1926 by Louella Albee.
An early initative was to establish a public library for residents of Venice, Nokomis, Osprey and Englewood. Later the library became the nucleus for the Venice Public Library which opened in 1965; over 6000 books were donated in support of this effort.
Over 90 years later, the Club continues to carry on the legacy of it's founders by donating thousands of dollars each year to local charities and nonprofit organizations, by awarding scholarships to Venice High School students and by participating in community events.
Membership in VNWC offers the opportunity to form friendships while contributing to the community.
