The Woman's Club of Loudoun's History

The Woman's Club of Loudoun began 76 years ago when a group of thirteen woman met on July 19, 1944 to discuss forming a club. Soon the club was part of the Virginia Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Club (GFWC), one of the world's oldest and largest women's service organizations.
