When Louella Albee founded the Venice Nokomis Woman’s Club back in 1926, she did more than create a luncheon club. Gathering together women who cared about the community as much as she did has left a legacy of good works for close to 100 years.    First came a library within the club and it might have just remained that way but not with that group of women.
