Women On Our Own

Dee Berisha

Women On Our Own (WOOO) believes that the support of local businesses is not only essential for growth of our community, but a whole bunch of fun, too! One such event found our 2nd Saturday Dine Around at Catalina Craft Pizza in Catalina. We were lucky to have reservations, and soon after we took our seats, no empty table could be found! Jade was our server, and she was amazing, finding room on our three pushed-together tables to present each of our pizzas on its own rack! Sharing took place, but we all wanted to take portions of our pizza home to enjoy the next day, so lots of take-out boxes were provided. Jade also made sure that we had our beverage orders delivered promptly, as well as individual checks. But who wanted to leave when all the patrons were bopping and swaying to the great music of the live jazz singer? WOOO will definitely be back!

The WOOO table at the Activities and Recreation Fair on Feb. 4 was also a wonderful event and an opportunity to meet many women (and men who stopped by) who were interested in how WOOO could support their journeys in life. Men were encouraged to form their own MOOO (Men On Our Own).

Our 230 members come from every corner of our country and have visited, lived, and worked in countries throughout the world, which reflects all of our SaddleBrooke community. Our stories are numerous, but our voice is one. We are strong, we are vital, and we all have life’s ups and downs, which are testaments of who we are. We love and care and bring this to our WOOO community!
