Human Interest

Wild Boomer Women is an instant community of girlfriends, events and activities for women over 40.

Started in Phoenix in 2008, Wild Boomer Women has over 500 members. The group meets frequently to have fun, meet new girlfriends and enjoy life.

According to a press release, one of the goals of the group is to show women how to have more fun in life, get out from behind their computers, take a break from work, family and responsibility and just be. Our long-term goal is to have chapters all over the country and the world.

The founder, Sue Barenholtz, Queen of the Wild Boomer Women, has relocated to Sedona and has formed a chapter here.

The first gathering — Getting to Know You Wild Boomer Women Style — will be held Friday, Aug. 7, at 6:30 p.m., at Barking Frog Grille in the Reserve Room. Just ask for Wild Boomer Women. You can order off the menu and will receive separate checks.

Toni Walker, a Scottsdale accountant, is a fan of the group.

“It has added so much more to my life, especially since I work so much. Girlfriends and laughing are very important to me. Now, I’m getting out and having more fun, and all I have to do is show up, because the events are already planned for me.”
