Planning for summer classes is going on now

The summer schedule of classes will be starting in late June. If you have a favorite you wish were on the schedule, communicate with the instructor and see if you can influence decisions and planning. If you volunteer to help in some small way that could make a big difference. All instructors are volunteers, so what they usually want the most is help.

Watch this web site calendar about June 1st and the June newsletter for the class schedule. And, then call and enroll quickly. All classes are first come, first serve.

Most of the CKCS classes meet once per week for six weeks and have an enrollment fee of $60. However, there are exceptions - please pay close attention to the calendar or call 859-373-1000 for details. CKCS members get a 20% discount on class and seminar fees.



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 one can sign up to participate.

You must have an online account under your name on the Kroger website.

Creating a digital account is as simple as 1, 2, 3!

Simply visit Kroger.com or download the Kroger Mobile App from the App Store or Google Play, and follow these directions:

Select the REGISTER button and enter your information.

Select CREATE ACCOUNT.

Please make sure that you add your Plus Card number or create a Virtual Card number while registering your digital account (your telephone number makes a good virtual card number). This is required for the Community Rewards program so that your transactions apply toward the organization you choose.

How do I select an organization?

Selecting the organization that you wish to support is as simple as updating the Community Rewards selection on your digital account.

Sign in to your digital account.

Select MY ACCOUNT.

Scroll down to the COMMUNITY REWARDS section of your account page.

Select ENROLL NOW or EDIT.

Enter the name or NPO number of the organization that you wish to support - CKCS is number 11119.

Select the appropriate organization from the list and click SAVE.

Your selected organization will now display in the Community Rewards section of your account.

Any future transactions using the Card number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program.

It takes approximately 10 days for the Community Rewards total to begin displaying on your receipt.

How do I view my Community Rewards details?

Wondering how much you have earned toward your selected organization? You may view the total you earned during the last quarter by following these instructions:

Sign in to your digital account.

Select MY ACCOUNT.

Scroll down to the COMMUNITY REWARDS section.

The amount earned will be listed as LAST QUARTER KROGER DONATION.

How do I ensure that my transactions are applied to the program?

You must present your Plus Card or provide your Alternate Virtual ID at the register during the transaction in order for it to count toward the program.

Do I ever need to renew my selected organization(s)?

Your selected organization must be renewed once a year, after August 1st.

Simply follow the instructions detailed in the SELECTING AN ORGANIZATION section to maintain or update your chosen organization.

If you have further questions, please contact the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141.

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.
