Thoughts From a Tuskegee Airman
Thoughts From a Tuskegee Airman
Dr. Hillard Pouncy, Jr. is a world traveler, having traveled to over 40 different countries and four continents, plus islands in Central America.  He also lived in Saudi Arabia for a time.
Hillard was born on February 8, 1922 in Prichard, AL.  He earned a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Syracuse University in 1958.   While attending Tuskegee Institute Hillard met another student, Mattie Mae Hunter, and they were married in 1947.  Hillard and Mattie were married for 60 years until her death in 2007. They have one son and one grandson.
He is retired from Union Carbide where he worked as a chemist for 30 years.  After he retired, he lived and worked in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for six years while he was a technical advisor to Saudi Arabian Petrochemical Company.  In 2008, Hillard received the Congressional Gold Medal in recognition of service with the Tuskegee Airmen during World War ll.  Hillard also served with the New York air National Guard and retired as a Major in the U.S. Air Force Reserve.
“My story is a simple one.  In everything I did--whether for my country, my family, my people, or my Maker—I did my best.  I am convinced this is the meaning of being a Tuskegee Airman.”

Parking Changes for the Loudermilk Parking Garage
United Way is now contracted with LAZ Parking to provide the parking services for the Loudermilk Center parking garage.  And with this comes changes to our parking system, some now and some in the future.  Please be sure to read all information thoroughly to avoid having your car towed.
Beginning immediately, parking will cost $12 just for a vehicle to enter the garage and immediately leave it.  There is no complimentary time.  So be sure you obtain a parking validation sticker when you arrive to a club meeting to ensure that you aren't charge the higher rate. 
Reserved Parking Places are only available for Kiwanis Club members who display the Kiwanis decal on their car at all times, even after the club meeting begins.  You must have this decal placed inside your back window on the passenger side. If you have a convertible, you can place it on the front window on the drivers side.  It is a static cling decal and easy to adhere.  Please get one from Karen at the luncheon meeting.  If you do not have a decal on your car, you may park in any unmarked parking space located on floors 4 through 6 of the garage.
Guests attending the luncheon meetings will need to park in unmarked parking places, and not the reserved spots.
Starting Immediately: If you do not have a decal on your car and you park in a reserved space, you will be booted and you must pay to remove the boot.  The 2nd and subsequent offenses may result in your car being towed.
Parking Cards: If you have a parking card, you will need to complete a form identifying your vehicle and license plate, and return to Karen ASAP.  There is a place on the form for a second vehicle in case you drive an alternate car at times.  This form will help LAZ identify you as a Kiwanis card parker in case there is ever any trouble with your card working and your ability to enter/exit the garage.  A Parking Form may be downloaded HERE.
Also, parking cards are being reprogrammed and will only work on Tuesdays from 9:30 am - 4 pm.  If you have a parking card and have been using it to access the garage on other days, it will no longer work.
Parking Cost Increase:  Beginning October 1, Parking will increase for both those with parking cards and those that do daily tickets.  Beginning October 1st, Parking Cards will cost $38 per quarter and parking tickets will be $4 per luncheon visit and only valid on Tuesday.
Thank you for your attention to this and ensure that your car does not get towed by placing a decal on your car immediately, or parking in the unreserved places.
Thank you.
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for about 6 individuals who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
Spotlights are done every 2nd and 4th Tuesday luncheon meeting (and the occasional 5th) each month.  You have two minutes to showcase your business and tell the other members how you can benefit them!  To get on the schedule, just email Karen at
