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.
September message from the EAST

Brethren,

       Here I am again, reporting for the trestleboard with no new news to report.   The Grand Lodge of California has not issued any new notices allowing us to reconvene, but I do believe there is light at the end of the tunnel and we may be moving towards something positive. 

         We are back on with working with the Red Cross and the Blood Drives.  Continue with success.  So far, our lodge has collected 244 units of blood which equates to saving 732 lives.  I’ll be posting future dates so you’ll be able to attend.  Lately, the Red Cross is offering a free COVID-19 anti-body test for anyone who donates. 

          I hope to see us all together soon.  I’m looking forward to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd degrees that we will get done this year.

          Until then, Stay Safe and Sane. 

Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master

September message from the WEST

Brethren,

       Each and everyone of us may be going through some challenging times in our lives but the best part of this brotherhood is knowing that we can easily reach out to each other for any reason we feel.

      I am sure that there’s always ears that will hear and heart that will listen.

      We might not embrace to give comfort but there’s always a lending hand to support.

      We may not be in each other’s midst but the principles of Masonry always keeps us together.

       We are bounded by a common faith not just that of for God but for each other, knowing and believing that we have each other.

         May you and your family continually be blest with God’s protection.

Fraternally,
Dave Romero
Senior Warden

 

September message from the SOUTH

Brethren,

 

        The heat is on, and Summer is here!

         So, for me, it’s time to break-out the small kiddie-pool, fill it with water, ice, and my feet! Brothers, I gotta say, nothing feels better on a hot day than sitting with your feet in ice water. Well, except maybe actually sitting in the pool on a low beach chair. Haha. Trust me, if you try either of these you’ll be happy you did. Anyway, I just wanted to offer you guys a “Kool” suggestion for a hot day.

        Gone crazy at home yet? Charities and volunteer work may be what you need to stretch those legs! Blood donation, mission service, food banks, and beach clean-up, to name a few, are always receptive. Just be safe out there. These are all fine activities, but I’ll have you know that my favorite has always been sitting at home with that cold can in my hand! Haha, I’ve digressed. Other possibilities include online education. Check out the California GL new I-Member app. Its amazing.

        This about covers things for this month, brethren. Hopefully, we get to see each other’s faces in lodge soon. Until next time, same Bat-time; same Bat-channel!

Fraternally,
Jack Lewis
Junior Warden
