Lots of Halloween spirit at the semiannual meeting in October.

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, email Ruthe Bergener at blueskiescolorado930@gmail.com. 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 Mountain View Clubhouse:

  • Progressive Hand and Foot Canasta at 6 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month (email Susan Williams at atsusanfw1010@gmail.com);
  • Game Night, playing a variety of card and board games, at 6 p.m. on the last Wednesday of the month (email Jan Maresca at janmaresca@gmail.com);
  • Mah Jongg at 2 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of the month (email Brenda McBride at bmcb.ret@gmail.com);
  • Trivia games at 3 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month (email Hazel Staloff at hazelny@msn.com);
  • Mexican Train at 6 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month (email Joni Campel at joniandpiggy@wbshi.net);
  • Book Club, meeting for breakfast and book discussion at 9 a.m. on the fourth Friday of the month (email Brenda McBride at bmcb.ret@gmail.com).

We also have both afternoon and evening bridge groups (email Terry Hand at terryhand@q.com).
