What Is United Singles?
It’s a non-profit social club comprised of single persons and is centered in the Olympia area. The Club has been referred to as “the best of the best”.
Basically it’s a club for singles who want to make friends and have fun – who want to get out and do things with other singles such as dancing, game nights, potlucks and travel.
It was organized in 1975 and is not affiliated with any other group or church and does not have any chapters or branches. It is a club unique in and of itself - "A one of a kind."
United Singles Friends,
As you have likely noticed, there have been no United Singles newsletters or other information about the Club in the past few months. The reason for this is that at the February board meeting, the Board voted that United Singles be dissolved and its profits donated to charity. The effective date was March 31, 2014.
There are various reasons why the Club was closed, among them being ever-dwindling participation at activities and fewer volunteers to keep functions going. Given the above, we had no choice. A few individuals performed all of the work and as the saying goes, we were getting burned out. We appreciate your support over the years and wish you the best.
You might want to check out another organization – Singles Resource Club of Tacoma. They have many activities, and you might find something within the organization that you are interested in. Their contact is www.srcoftacoma.com, or 253-591-9273.
On a sad note, we lost the current President and long-time member of United Singles, Jim Parshall. He was killed in a jet ski accident in Mexico in March. He died doing what he loved best – cruising and everything involved with it. Jim had been a member of United Singles for decades, and his presence will be missed.
There will be a memorial dance and potluck to celebrate Jim’s life on Sunday, May 18th, from 3 pm to 7 pm, at the VFW Hall, 2902 Martin Way E,Olympia, WA 98506,(360) 754-1346. There is no charge for the dance. Please come and share your memories of Jim with his and your friends, and bring a dish to share. More information will be given out as the date gets closer.
