This group meets for lunch every third Thursday at 11:30am at MJ's Restaurant in Marion.  

 
History: The first meeting of the CMF (formerly known as the MGHPA or the Mechanical Group Head Protective Association) was June 17th 1982 at the Longbranch.  By the 1990s this group expanded to include anyone working in mechanical engineering, mechanical design, mechanical quality or fabrication.  Retirees joined soon after.  In the past 10 years attendees have primarily been retirees.
