Women On Our Own (WOOO) News

Lots of Halloween spirit at the semi-annual meeting in October.

Women On Our Own (WOOO) is an organization for women who are on their own (single and not in a committed relationship) and 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])
