Founded in 1992, First Place Singles (FPS) is a membership organization that was originally sponsored by the Columbia Association.  Our monthly calendar, activity flyer, membership application and other information can be found at  We are a group of single men and women from the mid-Maryland area who enjoy socializing together with other singles.  Popular activities include house parties, dances, recreational outings, games nights, happy hours, sports events, theater and special events.  Monthly General Membership and Activities Planning Meetings encourage member participation.  We have bowling, a book club and a poetry night every month and volleyball every week September through June.  Members take turns hosting different events, especially happy hours or dinners together.  Our holiday parties attract singles from many different clubs.  You are welcome to attend any of the activities on our calendar that are not marked “FPS members only.”  Be sure to RSVP so the hosts can plan, and also so they can notify you of a change or cancellation.  Dues are $25 per year, and members receive a monthly newsletter, calendar and activity updates and a discounted admission price for parties.  Only FPS members can host events on our meet-up site.  Please join in our activities and enjoy warm friendships and lively social activities with us.  We look forward to meeting you!
