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.
December message from the Master

      We are winding down our year.   It’s been quite the roller coaster these past two years.  I appreciate everyone’s contribution with all that we were able to do. 

      Congratulations to our newly elected and appointed officers.   Our installation is scheduled for January 8 and it should be a good one. 

       The two special meetings we held this past month went well.  The first was the Summons.  Thank you those that attended and even more so, to our Senior Warden-elect , Bryant Gaddis, and Junior-Warden-elect, Brian Halter, for stepping into those two roles for the ensuing masonic year. We also voted in our new Master. Congratulations to David Romero, Master-Elect, Jonathan Gray, Treasurer-elect and John Gaddis, IV, Secretary-elect.  It was very nice to see so many members who had not been able to attend our prior meetings.  We have a strong lodge when our membership comes out with such a strong presence.  It was just as nice to see many of those same members return as sideliners for our newest Entered Apprentice’s degree.  The 1st degree conferral for our newly obligated brother, Raymond Ramos, was well attended.   I look forward to seeing you all more often at our stated meetings and degree conferrals.

        It’s the time of year for officer installations.   I was able to attend two so far.   Our own Order of the Eastern Star Long Beach Chapter and Pac Rim Lodge #567 both had its installations in November, both of which were nicely done and well attended.  Congratulations to all the newly installed officers.  If you have an opportunity, please try to attend an installation to support our neighbor lodges.   It’s a good way to meet our fellow brethren and members of the other masonic orders.

         I also want to hear from all our members who have, or know of, young men who might be interested in the DeMolay Masonic Order.  Our Long Beach Chapter of DeMolay is poised to return to Long Beach and we all need to support them as best we can.  These are our future Master Masons. What virtues we teach them will carry them through the rest of their lives.  If anyone has questions about the requirements or what it entails to become a DeMolay, please contact me.

           We have our annual Christmas Party scheduled for December 11, 2021.  The announcement is posted in this trestleboard and also on our Lodge Calendar.  We’ll also have our installation in January.  I’ll look forward to seeing you at both events.

Most Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master
