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.
October message from the EAST

Brethren,

      While working on our calendar for next year, I found the portal on the Grand Lodge website that allows all our members to post comments for each other to keep up to date and read how we are all doing.  I have posted a few messages on that forum and will repeat an important one in this trestleboard message which is to let everyone know that the officers have discussed and agreed that it would be best to “hold the line” as it is for 2021. This is due to COVID, of course. There’s been very little activity among us all and even more so, there’s been no degrees allowing our officers to gain proficiency for advancement. Keeping the officers in their current roles for next year, will, of course, need approval from all our members.

     The Grand Lodge portal/forum is as good a place as anywhere to provide feedback. Also, please feel free to check in and inform everyone how you are doing. Give us an update on what you did this summer. You can also post pictures of your different adventures.                     .

      We are back in swing with our Blood Drives. The next one is scheduled for October 30, which is a Friday.  We have another scheduled for November.  For more details, please check the Grand Lodge message board or our Lodge
website at www.masonry.org.              

Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master

October message from the WEST

Brethren,

         As we continue to live in the new normal, it has brought us the benefits of being able to adapt, to be more patient to these changes and tolerate the restrictions.

        I believe the virtues we’ve learned in masonry and how we live them has prepared us for this kind of situations in our lives.                               .
        Even though we are deeply affected, may we not forget that there are needs that are more important than ours and we should not let this unfortunate occurrences detach us from the value of humanity.
        To be more considerate to others who needs more understanding and still extend our hands for assistance.
         Brethren, continue to be vigilant in finding good around the negativity that surrounds us.

May you and your family remain safe and healthy.

Fraternally,
Dave Romero
Senior Warden

 

October message from the SOUTH

Brethren,

        Autumn is here at last, and thus, shorter days. This can be good because less sun means less heat, thank you. There’s no fun to be had in lockdown during summertime, not with all that heat, anyway! Maybe our focus on this pandemic, like this heat, will begin to wane, too. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
       Halloween is heading our way toward the end of month, so be aware. Let’s keep all the trick or treaters out there safe!

        Another heads up for this season is the last harvest. Most gardens should be popping out their last fruits by now. So, after that happens it’s time to celebrate a job well done!

         I’ve noticed an increased online presence within Freemasonry lately, and it seems to be a reaction to the pandemic restrictions. There are many lodges offering inclusion to their webinars & group discussions. There are some very interesting topics online. I suggest, brothers that you check it out! It’s fun to discover new things in Freemasonry.

         This about covers things for this trestle board. Let’s do this again next month! Until then, brethren, be smart, be safe, and be well!

Fraternally,
Jack Lewis
Junior Warden
