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

August message from the EAST

 

Hello Again, Brethren

        Here we sit, yet again, waiting for the passage of the pandemic in hopes that normal arrives.  It may not be the same as it was before.  The future is usually never the same as it was in the past.  We’ve been working hard at the lodge on lodge things.   The Red Cross events have discontinued for the time-being but we’ll be back on track with that soon.

        My family and I were able to get out for a weekend last month, setting up a tent and lighting a campfire up near Big Bear.  It’s a real treat to look up at the sky at night and see an unlimited number of stars with a few falling every so often.  Warm Days and Very Cool nights.  Our base was at Heart Bar Campground with a few friends in tow.  I might suggest we, as a lodge, move to have an outing like this once we get past COVID-19.

         I trust you are all safe and well.  Again, if anything is needed, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or another brother.  We are here to help each other when there is a need.

Until then, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and Stay Sane.

Fraternally,
Dean West
Worshipful Master

August message from the WEST

Brethren,

 

       As we continue to experience the struggles, adjustments and adapting to the lingering existence of crisis, let us also realize and appreciate all the good things and situations that came out of this predicament.

      Because there are definitely a lot of good that this situation has brought to us.

      The blessing of time and opportunities of reflections that we can use to better our perspective in living with the changes it brought.

      May we use these goods to propel us to better ways on dealing with our emotions,

love ones, people in general and most importantly,

our faith.

       Let us do our due diligence to be safe for others even if we feel that we are not affected or bothered by all these diabolical changes the world is experiencing.

       May you all stay to be healthy and safe.

 Fraternally,
Dave Romero
Senior Warden

 

August message from the SOUTH

Brethren,

        August is here! But, somehow this pandemic-summer just doesn’t measure up. This virus is not only changing our lives in a general sense, it’s causing us to closely reevaluate our daily life and social behaviors as well. School, work, and leisure have all changed. Let’s take a look.

        School systems are looking to change the way they teach. This has serious potential to change our family lifestyles, as online classes look to be the new “go-to” by some schools systems. It may be part-time online mixed with in-person teaching, or it may be a full-time strategy. Either way it would be good for our brothers that have school aged children to evaluate their home-schooling work station, ascertain any needs, and ready it. Our children may have to utilize it soon!

        Work has changed too! Some folks have work from home options while others do not, and during a viral lockdown only “essential workers” are permitted to continue working. This leaves allot of folks in career limbo. What to do in this situation? Sorry to say brothers, if you CANNOT return to your careers, and have no other options, then you must change to survive!!! My best suggestion here is to look for a main job or part-time opportunity that is deemed “essential”!

        Leisure time has been affected as well! Most of our social options have been forced closed…again. But, yay, we still get social distancing guidelines, which suggest 5-6 feet apart from other folks whenever we’re out and about. Wearing a face mask in public seems to be gaining acceptance as well, slow moving but gaining ground. Placing hand sanitizers around the house, work, and car can be a real lifesaver. These two items; masks & hand sanitizers, can easily be carried around for safety sake. Combine them with the social distancing measures, and you my brother will be prepared! Be sure to check the official news stations for updated pandemic procedures.

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

 Fraternally,
Jack Lewis
Junior Warden
