Abe as KISS member? PCCC renovation continues

By BERNARD SCHOENBURG / The State Journal-Register

The administrative offices of the Prairie Capital Convention Center are open once again, sporting a new look after renovation and adorned by reminders of past shows -- including four framed depictions of Abraham Lincoln wearing KISS makeup.

Each of the pictures, displayed just behind the front desk that greets visitors to the second-floor office suite, is signed by a member of KISS, which appeared at the Center in July.

Already, inner offices are adorned with posters from past events. Brian Oaks, general manager of the PCCC, said more decorating will be done with autographed guitars and concert posters.

“Part of what we want to do instead of using more traditional artwork is use all those pieces of memorabilia,” Oaks said.

The idea of making posters of Lincoln with Kiss makeup came from Jenny Vaughn, the convention center’s box office manager. Two sets were put together using photo technology by Kathy Alcorn, former concessions manager, Oaks said.

“Gene Simmons is a big history buff,” Oaks said of the KISS vocalist and bass player. When Simmons saw the pictures in the dressing room, Oaks said, “He loved ’em.”

Oaks said band members plan to donate the second set to raise money for a charity that helps veterans.

ROCKS CAPE CORAL CHAMBER CAMPAIGN
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Chamber members Cheryl Komnick of Caloosa Tent and Party Rental, Donna Meola of Kirkwood Electric, Dominic Soricelli of Hampton Inn and Suites and chamber staff liaison Amanda Brunson give their best impression of the rock band KISS at a kickoff of a campaign to attract new members. / Special to The News-Press

Here are some excerpts from the article written by Tom Hayden:

“We are doing a membership drive for the first time in two years and we wanted to create some interest,” chamber president Mike Quaintance said.

“This drive will help us expand out networking opportunities for our current and future members,” said Donna Meola, chairwoman of the drive.

In keeping with the “chamber rocks” theme, each team of volunteers has a band name. At the event kickoff earlier this week, the teams were given their marching orders and pep talk by a group of business owners dressed up as the band, KISS.

“We feel like the time is right to start growing the chamber again,” Quaintance said.
