Women On Our Own

Liz Boyd

WOOO is for single women living in SaddleBrooke and the Ranch who want to stay busy and have fun. Our activities include:

Breakfast and Books: The WOOO book club meets at 9:00 a.m. on the fourth Friday of every month from January to October. Our club meets at the Mesquite Grill to enjoy breakfast and then discuss the monthly book selection. We read many different genres of books including non-fiction, fiction, mystery and science fiction. A member selects a month to host and then leads a discussion of the book. The book selection for July was The Color of Water by James McBride; the August book is Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. All WOOO members are welcome to come and try us out! Enjoy some good food and a good book discussion. For more information, contact Brenda McBride at [email protected].

Dining Out: We go out for dinner on the third Wednesday of each month and enjoy Tucson’s many good restaurants.

Potlucks: On the fourth Saturday of the month, we gather at a member’s home for a potluck dinner and good conversation.

Meetups: Ever feel like going to a place or event but would like some companions to go with you? Every month, our members get together for activities such as concerts, movies, restaurants, happy hours and more.

Games: Like to play games? We have groups of members who gather regularly to play canasta, Mexican Train, Scrabble, mahjong, bridge and others.

Excursions and travel: We periodically sponsor trips to locations both near and far.

In addition, you will be invited to a wine and cheese reception where you can meet other members and learn more about the organization. There is a one-time fee of $12 to join.
