To ensure only properly qualified candidates are admitted to the Fraternity, Huachuca Lodge No. 53 F&AM requires that a Petitioner provide a copy of a recent Guarding the West Gate background report to be submitted with the Petition when seeking membership. The Petitioner shall review his background review report and after his review, if the Petitioner desires to proceed, he shall place three (3) copies of the report, each one in a separate sealed envelope, and include all three (3) envelopes with this petition. The Lodge secretary has envelopes if some are needed when you submit your petition.


The cost to the Petitioner is $16, which is not refundable should you choose not to proceed or are rejected for membership.


If you wish to proceed in the background check process, please click the button below to be taken to the Guarding the West Gate website.

Do not proceed until you have a petition in hand!
