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 EAST

Brethren,

      I again must report from a distance as we’ve not been released to our normal activities.  I, like you, look forward to getting back to normal.

       This month, I want to recognize two people in particular.  Brother Harry Bugarin, our Junior Warden, for making many phone calls to all our widows.  2nd is Brother Timothy Scott.  Tim, although now living in the Bakersfield area, has reached out to most of our members.  Both Harry and Tim’s efforts reaching out to check on our Long Beach Masonic family are greatly appreciate.. 

        We continue to do our part with the Red Cross and our blood drives.  So far, since our partnership began, we’ve raised 183 units of blood which equates to saving 549 lives.  We have two blood drives scheduled for June 12th and June 28th.  We have worked very tightly with the Red Cross to ensure this is being done safely and using best medical practices. 

         I’ve been working with our Secretary, Treasurer and Hall Association to ensure our bills are being paid timely and the lodge is being looked after.

        As a reminder, the Grand Lodge has implemented the Distressed Worthy Brother Relief Fund.  If you are able or have an interest in the program, I will direct you to the Grand Lodge Website for more information.

        I hope to see us all together soon.  We still have degrees to complete and other lodge events that will get back on the schedule. 

 

Until then, Stay Safe and Sane!

Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master

June message from the WEST

Brethren,

 

      As we grieve the loss of our beloved brothers Worshipful Don Geiger and Worshipful Lou McKay let us be reminded of the times they were with us and the moments of cherish-worthy experiences with them.

      May their families find peace in the midst of their sorrows through the great and fond memories they left.

      As we are now overwhelmed by uncertain times, let us be reminded that we can find solace through our faith and the love of the people around us.

       Circumstances keeps us distant now but the same circumstances are keeping us close by knowing that our brotherhood is something we can lean on… so reach out, don’t be silent because there’s someone and something here for you.

        God bless, be safe and stay healthy.

Fraternally,
Dave Romero
Senior Warden

 

June message from the SOUTH

Brethren, 

        It seems like this pandemic has entered a new phase where hospitals in our area aren’t at risk for overcrowding anymore. This is good news for sure. Let’s keep it coming. Some of the Long Beach workforce has also returned to work, and  life is that much closer to returning to normal. For those of us that have had the time for charity I want to offer a heart felt thanks! Charity is not only giving money, food or clothing to the needy, it’s about giving time. Showing that you care and are concerned about others goes a very long way. So, to all of our brothers that went that extra mile, thank you!

 

         I’m not sure about you guys, but I can’t wait to have another stated meeting and dinner at lodge. We have so much to catch up on. Grand Lodge is offering leadership courses online called webcasts. These are to replace the Master  & Wardens leadership retreats, and is offered to ALL masons free of charge! What a great value. I encourage everyone to register for these classes ASAP.

        As always brethren, Long Beach lodge #327 is here for you. Have you any need please contact a brother for assistance. If you need groceries, call a brother. If you need help to navigate online interests call a brother. Even if you are in need of home repairs don’t hesitate to call on your fraternity. We are happy to help out.

        Until next month Brothers, be smart, be cautious, be well, and endure.

Fraternally,
Jack Lewis
Junior Warden
