Women On Our Own

Ahhh … the good Llife! Our Tucson oasis is truly the gem in the Sonoran Desert. And Women On Our Own (WOOO) offers the map to that good life for single women in SaddleBrooke. Exploration of SaddleBrooke, Tucson, and the endless scope of Southern Arizona is offered to members, as life is lived to the fullest by our 230 members!

A wonderful evening of conversation and great Italian dining was enjoyed by a group of WOOO members at Giuseppe’s Ristorante on Oracle Road. The WOOO monthly Dine Around is celebrated on the third Wednesday of each month, and the location is chosen by a different hostess each month, so the fare is wide-ranging and always well attended.

Giuseppe’s was able to accommodate 15 WOOO members, and dishes of veal, clams, eggplant, sausages, and a wide variety of pasta and sauces were savored by all! The tastes of Italy were well represented on our table, and many of us were able to take home leftovers to be enjoyed again. What will the dining choice be for WOOO members next month? We are excited to learn!

WOOO also offers other dining options each month, including an ethnic dining experience and 2nd Saturday dining venues within SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch, and nearby Catalina, in addition to a monthly potluck at a WOOO member’s home. This hostess also picks the theme for her potluck. We have had fun with such themes as County Fair (anything on a stick), “My Mother’s Best Recipe,” and enjoying breakfast for dinner!

For our members who enjoy the challenges and laughter that gaming brings, WOOO offers Progressive Hand and Foot, Canasta, Mexican Train, Game Night with various card and board games, and Mah Jongg. Bridge players have been welcomed back after a long COVID hiatus. Our popular Book Club continues to celebrate members’ choices and the discussions that ensue.

WOOO participants are single SaddleBrooke women who are not in a committed relationship. Our dues are a one-time fee of $12. WOOO also understands and is welcoming to women who find themselves as long-term caregivers to partners or spouses.
