Enjoy the cool, clean mountain air in our own Shangri-La. Watch chipmunks run through trees. It's beautiful. That's why we live here. You can find solitude and listen to wind in the pines. OR if you are single and looking for social life, we have that, too.

Our mountain area has a sizeable population of singles. According to the 2010 US Census, there are 4,300 single householders living in and around Lake Arrowhead, Crestline, and Running Springs. Two out of five heads of household are either living alone or without a spouse.

The Mountain Singles Organization was founded in March 2009 to serve that community. The organization has been nonprofit, and free to members, from the outset.

MSO has 400+ registered members. Membership has held steady at that level for most of the last 7 years. The largest source of new members is by referral from existing members.
MSO is structured as a simple friendship club. We just socialize, without any attempt at matchmaking, but like to count the couples who met here. The service area is exclusive to our mountain communities, making this the only local singles organization. MSO supports the local chambers of commerce.

There are lots of events to draw participation. There is a dinner every Wednesday at 6 pm. Members vote on the selection of restaurants. On first and third Fridays there is a Game Night, which is also a potluck. Other repeating events include a Movie Night. Members are encouraged to create and host their own events. Approved events are supported with email and website coverage. Member-initiated events often include field trips, such as to the Laguna Sawdust Festival. The best-attended events are house parties, usually scheduled near holidays.

New members are always welcome. If interested, visit, or call (909) 744-8561.
