Women On Our Own News (WOOO)

Book Club members visited BOOKS, a huge store in Phoenix, and then had lunch at Stockyards Restaurant.

Women On Our Own (WOOO) is an organization for women who are on their own (single and not in a committed relationship), who want to stay active and enjoy life with friends. We maintain a busy schedule, with activities to suit any interest. The latest is a biking group for WOOO members who like to bicycle for fun and exercise. For more information, contact Ruthe Bergener at [email protected] Ruthe also coordinates excursions to places and events near Tucson. For example, a group of members went to the Tubac Luminaria Nights in early December.

The WOOO calendar includes many dinners out, as well as a monthly potluck at a member’s home. In addition, the following activities take place in the MountainView Clubhouse:

Progressive Hand and Foot Canasta at 6 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month (contact Susan Williams at [email protected]);
