Brooke and Joe Demo iPhone Tips

Sharing Pictures from your iPhone using AirDrop

Eight Easy Steps

1 - You have just taken a great picture on your iPhone and want to share it with your friend with you.

2 - The range for this procedure is about 33 feet. You must have Bluetooth on.

3 - From the bottom of your screen drag up to open the control panel. There are several options to choose from but the one we want today is the AirDrop app. After you tap on AirDrop, you have three options: Receiving Off, Contacts Only, Everyone. In this example tap on Everyone. The other person or people with you must do the same if they want to get the picture.

4 - Once you have turned on AirDrop, go to your photos and select the photo(s) that you want to share.

5 - Then tap on the share button. On your phone above the share options, circles will appear with the names of anyone in the immediate area who has AirDrop on.

6 - You then tap on the person's name that you want to receive the picture.

7 - The person receiving the picture will be able to view the picture and then either accept or decline it. The photo will then reside in your photos. If it is declined, the sender will get a message to that effect.

8 - And that is all there is to sharing a photo with a friend.

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.

Remember, August is the month that all Kroger customers must repeat their signup for the Community Rewards Program. But, Kroger has made changes in the way that one can sign up to participate.

Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to your Community Rewards Program. You can also do this online or with your smart phone.

You can do this anytime in August but don't forget.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. A few days after you enroll, you will see a message that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS on your purchase receipts.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


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 computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
