News and Upcoming Events







Tech Night - September 08 at 7 p.m.

Anniversary Party

Newsletter Editor and man-about-town - Jerry Heaton - will be our host for the September Tech Night. We will celebrate CKCS's 30th anniversary with some food and some funny stuff.

Jerry will play some of his collection of YouTube jokes and other entertainment found on the Internet. Jerry has a cadre of CKCS members who do the painstaking research to unearth the weirdest, funniest and silliest web sites for the newsletter and Jerry will select some of the most extreme in his collection.

Also, there will be some snacks such as cookies and a fruit tray and maybe other stuff. We don't have a menu put together yet. If you would like to volunteer, please do.


Photography Exhibit

The CKCS Photography Exhibit at CENTERED is still going on until September 11. Information is here.


Changes to Kroger Card Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

But, Kroger has made changes in the way that the program works that will take effect on September 1.

Kroger now requires all those who wish to have their spending at Kroger generate donations for CKCS to do two things:
1) get a Kroger Plus Card and
2) register on the Kroger website with CKCS as your donation choice.

Step 1 - Most everyone already has a Kroger Plus Card (it has a picture of a tomato on it), but if not you can get one instantly at the office counter in any Kroger store or we have a few at the CKCS front desk.

Step 2 - Use the Kroger website to register your Plus Card number and choose "Central Kentucky Computer Society" as your organization.

Detail instructions for Step 2:

a) go to https://www.kroger.com

b) click on Community Rewards

c) click on "Create an Account" to enroll

d) enter your information: including email address and a new password for this account

e) click Create Account

f) enter your Kroger Plus card number - it is on the both the wallet card and the keyring card

g) Click "Enroll now for Community Rewards"

h) enter the organization name "Central Kentucky Computer Society" or the CKCS number which is 11119

Your existing Kroger Gift cards can still be used to buy groceries but after September 1 will no longer generate donations to CKCS.


Beginning Facebook Workshop

Monday, September 22, 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Kellyann Stackhouse will be back for another of her popular Facebook seminars. No experience is required but please have your Facebook account ready and know your password.

She will show optimal privacy settings, how to find friends, how to avoid scams and safe navigation and much more.

Enrollment is limited, so hurry to get your seat.



Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your disk drive or whole computer to CKCS on any Wednesday between 10 AM and 1 PM or Thursday between 1 PM and 3 PM or to the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
