Midwest Foundry in Coldwater, Michigan

When I graduated from Coldwater, High School, in June of 1969, my father had a plan. On the first of October in 1969 I would turn 18. He set out to insure my future. On my birthday Dad said I got you a job at the foundry.
Dad was employed at Midwest Foundry from 1951, the year I was born, until 1986, the year my son was born. He was a member of the union and served as union secretary for several years. He considered the job as his best hope for the future and wanted it to be mine also.
Now I come to the issue at hand. I worked for the Midwest Foundry for 3 1/2 years. During that time I paid into the pension plan. I'm now able to draw on that plan but I need to know the number of the Union Local that represented me. Unfortunately I can't remember what that number is and without it no pension. Dad and Mom have both passed and my family draws a blank on this one too. The Union Hall was at 93 East Park Ave, Coldwater, MI. Right across the street from the Midwest. It's ironic that it was about 3 houses down from my parents house, where I lived from 1962 until 1973.

Can anyone help me with this one?
