Group Activities

Men's Breakfast — A group of men meet the third Monday of the month for breakfast.  An email generally comes each month announcing the event and is posted on the Unit Website and calendar. We are looking for a coordinator of this event. If interested in additional information, contact Karen Brooks (kabrooksie@gmail.com)

Ladies Lunch Bunch — The Social Committee arranges a lunch at various restaurants each month. A great opportunity to try new restaurants or to revisit some favorites. This event usually occurs the first half of the month.  Check the calendar and watch for the announcements.

Book Group — The Unit 48 Ladies Book Group meets once a month, generally at 10am on the 3rd Monday of the month throughout the year.  Although we have about 20 women in the Book Group, average attendance is about 10 in any given month due to travels, snowbirds, etc.  We vote on books to read at our first meeting of the year based on books recommended by members of the group.  The Ladies Book Group is open to all women in Unit 48; however, since our meetings are held in members’ homes, we do want to know in advance if women are interested in joining the Book Group.  For further information or if you wish to join the Unit 48 Ladies Book Group, please contact Carol Hanthorne at 825-6973 or jhanthorne@wbhsi.net.

Hikers — Heads Up!  Contact Rolf Dahl-Hansen for upcoming hikes on the nearby trails.  He is willing to lead hikes from 4-5 miles in our local mountains.  Call 818-2721 or email rolf@tucson2.com.  Watch for the announcements.  Bring water and snacks, good hiking shoes and possibly walking sticks.  Hikes will be cancelled if the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Walkers — The Unit 48 walking group will be meeting every Monday and Friday at 7:00 am.  We walk for about 45 minutes.  Come join us!  No reservation needed, just show up!  Additionally, about once a quarter we walk to the Mesquite Grill for breakfast and then walk back home. This is generally announced during one of the morning walks and also an email is sent to the group.  For additional information, please contact Kay Dahl-Hansen at 818-2721 or email kay@tucson2.com.

Ladies Bunco Group — Unit 48 has a Ladie’s Bunco group that meets at 3pm the first Wednesday of the month (unless a major holiday) in one of the members’ home.  We have a roster of twelve “regular” players but are looking for more subs.  If you are interested in subbing with the Bunco group, please contact Ginny Rood (441-4979 or ginroo@msn.com).  With visiting time and three rounds of Bunco, we are finished by about 5pm.  Everyone contributes $5.50 to the prize pot which is distributed at the end of each meeting.  It’s a fun afternoon and if you are interested but don’t know how to play, we can teach you in about 5 minutes!

MahJongg Group — The Unit 48 MahJongg group generally meets every Monday from 1-4pm.  We’re encouraging brand new and beginner players ensure they receive instruction before coming to the group meetings.  Instructors are available on Wednesday mornings from 9am-12noon at The Preserve in Meeting Room 2, which is free and open to all. For the Unit MahJongg group you will need a current player’s card and if you have a MahJongg set, please bring it.  We also welcome friends of unit players that are MahJongg players.  Please contact Marda Benjamin (mardabenjamin@gmail.com) or Ellen Marano (emarano28@gmail.com) for additional details or questions you may have.
