How to Be a Member or Affiliate with Long Beach Lodge #327

To become a Mason all you have to do is ask a Mason, be a man at least 18 years of age, believe in a Supreme Being and not have a criminal record. The process involves petitioning the Lodge. Once you ask a member for an application for the degrees of Masonry, you will have to meet a few of the brothers to get the application completed. Once the application is completed and accompanied by the appropriate fee, the application would be read at one of our Stated or Business meetings. Once read, you will be contacted by some of the brothers who will want to talk with you. After the committee reports back to the Master in charge of the Lodge, your application would be voted on by the members at the next business meeting. All goes well, you would be scheduled for the first of three degrees given. After the First Degree and also the Second Degree there is some memory work to accomplish. After you are given your Third Degree you become a Master Mason and a member of the oldest Fraternity in the world. The best way to meet with members of our lodge is to attend one of our social functions such as a dinner or Fellowship Night or other social event. Most of our activities happen on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. We have a dinner at 7:00pm before our business meeting on the first Thursday evening of every month. (except holidays) Fellowship Nights are usually toward the end of the month on a Thursday evening. Check our calender in this site for event scheduling.

If you are a Mason already and looking for a good home lodge and would like to affiliate, just ask a member for a petition, and we will be pleased to process it. There is a lot of information on Masonry on the Internet.... some accurate, some not, but if you would like to get more information locally, feel free to contact us by E Mail and let us know your desires.
