Chapter Activities

Chapter luncheons are normally held on the third Saturday of each month, January through April and October and November (ang possibly December).
Luncheons are typically held at the Saddlebrooke Ranch Grill (located at Saddlebrooke Ranch) or at Saddlebrooke HOA1 or HOA2 facilities (located immediately north of Catalina, AZ). Reservations are required, and RSVP requests are emailed prior to each luncheon. Luncheons begin promptly at 11:30 AM and usually feature a speaker. Here is a list of upcoming events:

      Fire Chief Karrer's talk is titled "Don't play with matches".
    • 19 November 2022. Harvey Ferguson.

    • 14 January 2023. Command Sergeant Major Rick Krieberg.

    General Information

    The Catalina Mountains Chapter, in partnership with the Tucson Chapter, has actively provided community support. This support includes raising funds for
    Esperanza En Escalante, awaiting scholarships to University of Arizona ROTC students, and participating in Wreaths Across America in December.

    About Our Chapter

    The Catalaina Mountains Chapter is one of ten MOAA chapters in the state of Arizona. The Catalina Mountains Chapter began as a satellite chapter of the Tucson Chapter in 2015 and became a stand-alone MOAA chapter in 2022. The Chapter was formed because there were several members of the Tucson Chapter that lived in Saddlebrook, Saddlebrooke Ranch, Oro Valley and Marana, all located north of Tucson. These members, living north of Tucson, wanted to meet somewhere north of Tucson for lunch on a monthly basis.
