WOOO (Women On Our Own) is very excited to announce the election of new officers for our organization for the 2023-25 term. Hats off to this group of women who volunteered to place their names into consideration for these board positions. It is no small commitment to volunteer in a community such as SaddleBrooke with so many ways to celebrate our retirements and just have fun. But the many activities that attract us to this wonderful oasis are the very activities that demand volunteers to keep such events timely and attractive. So, if you find yourself enjoying activities in SaddleBrooke, take a minute to thank that supportive volunteer.

This passing of the baton took place on April 22 at the WOOO semi-annual membership meeting and potluck. Appetizers, sides and salads, main dishes, and desserts graced the serving tables and were enjoyed by the members. This potluck took the place of the monthly last-Saturday potluck held in a WOOO member’s home.

WOOO is filled with a large variety of activities and events. Those volunteers within WOOO who keep our organization busy were also recognized on April 22. They are Fira Stout, Bridge; Carolee Lawrence, Game Night; Debbie Flato, Progressive Hand and Foot; Brenda McBride, Mah Jongg; Karen Kelly, Dine-Around; Brenda McBride, Monthly Potluck; Pat Rourke, Second Saturday Dine-Around; Judy Rogoway, Ethnic Dining; Ruthe Burgener, Holiday Dinners; Jean Israel, Wine Tasting; Ruth Burgener, Movie and A Dinner; Dee Berisha and Brenda McBride, Day Trippers; Brenda McBride, Book Club and Breakfast; Pat Rourke, WOOO Walkers; and Dee Berisha, publicity.

If you see yourself interested in any of the activities listed above or are maybe just curious about learning, and you are a single woman in SaddleBrooke who is not in a committed relationship, consider joining WOOO. Our yearly membership fee is $10, and you can receive more information, as well as obtain a membership form, by contacting Charly McInroy, our new WOOO president, at [email protected] or 603-387-0149.
