History

Long Beach Lodge No. 327 F&AM originally begun in 1896 and occupied a space in a bank building on Pine Avenue in downtown Long Beach when the City of Long Beach was a small town by the beach. Since then, several thousand good men have come through its doors and incorporated the teachings of Freemasonry into their lives, thus bettering themselves and our society.
Just over 60 years ago the Lodge moved into its current location on Locust Ave. Built by men of vision, our current Masonic Facility has served numerous Lodges, and other Masonic affiliated groups with beauty and distinction.
Today, Long Beach Lodge has a membership just under three hundred and fifty. It meets the first Thursday evening of the month for its Stated Meeting and the subsequent Thursdays evenings are for degrees and social functions.
In addition to being part of an ancient fraternity as a brotherhood, we participate in a variety of community support efforts throughout the year. Our members are proud of their fraternity and the legacy of Freemasonry.

A Little About Us
Long Beach Lodge began when Long Beach was just a little city near the beach on a floor above a bank in 1896.
June message from the Master

      We have finally reached a point that allows our lodge, and all lodges in the State of California, to meet in person.  Our re-opening plan has been submitted to Grand Lodge and has been approved.  Details of the current requirements are posted in this trestleboard.  Further updates will be posted as we receive them.  Thanks to all of you for your patience while we worked towards this ultimate goal.

        With that said, we’ve been working on what we’ll be doing this year now the we are able.  What’s most positive, we now have in-person events scheduled on the calendar. 

        For those that do not know, this is a monumental year for our lodge.  On October 15th, 1896, our lodge’s Charter was signed and made official.   That puts us at our 125th year.  I’ve been working with Grand Lodge, specifically, the Grand Master, to schedule a night to celebrate this important milestone.  The date is set for October 23, 2021, a Saturday, so please mark your own calendars and plan to be there.  More information on this will be posted in the trestleboard as it becomes available.

       Also, we’ll be scheduling degrees  again.  First on the list is for initiate Albert Lashbrook.  More details, including a date, will be announced soon.  So please stand by.

       I want to again thank all the members of Long Beach Lodge 327 for your contributions during these somewhat strange and uncertain pandemic times.

       I look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

Most Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master

June message from the Senior Warden

My Brothers,

     We are finally getting close to meeting and fellowship in person again. Surely this brought us the appreciation of the opportunity of going to the lodge anytime we want and attending functions that was taken from us.

     The return to the lodge is celebratory one as we will have two major events in September and October. The greatest celebration is for our 125th Anniversary. This is such a very important event and to make it a real success we would need assistance in form of volunteers for the preparation.  The Junior Warden is forming various committees to handle each department. We need your inputs and physical participation. Please contact Jack Lewis, our Junior Warden and sign up.

       In addition to volunteering, let us all attend this very momentous and joyous event. Help out to reach other Bothers from other lodges. 

       Even though we are easing out on restrictions, continue to be careful and stay safe and healthy.

Fraternally,
Dave Romero
Senior Warden

June message from the Junior Warden

Brethren,

      Greetings from the South.  It looks like we are steadily moving forward this month. Most everything is opening up, bringing a little normalcy back into the fraternity. We miss all of you and hope to see you at lodge soon. Let’s make this year a good one. Remember, if you are running on pandemic time, it might be a good idea to reevaluate your schedule to better fit with lodge activities. First Thursday of the month clear? As always, we are here for you, brethren

Fraternally,
Jack Lewis
Junior Warden
