CKCS Tech Night - Monday - December 14 at 7 pm on Zoom

Apps to use and for Fun !


Usually I would be writing about December Tech Night to tell you that we would be having a Holiday Party and brief presentation. This December, like so much of the year, is going to be different. No food, no drink, no get-together party! Don't let Scrooge or the Grinch or the Covid-19 get you down during the holidays. Tech Night will be fun this year on Zoom.

Put on your favorite holiday sweater, decorate with festive lights, put on a Santa hat or crazy reindeer antlers (or not) and join the fun! Several members are going to be showing their favorite phone, tablet, and computer apps. We hope to cover several different types of apps that you might want to download whether you have an android or an Apple device. We will cover some music, productivity, games, communicationt and photo apps.

So get some good snacks ready and something to drink and join us on Zoom on Monday, December 14 at 7 p.m. to see a demonstration of these apps. An exact listing of the apps will be in the CKCS weekly email the Thursday before the meeting so you can download the apps to follow along with the demonstartions.

Come escape with us to kick off the holidays and enjoy an evening of fun.



Kroger Community Rewards 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.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Steps to create your Kroger account:

  1. Go to the Kroger website at https://www.kroger.com
  2. Put the mouse on Savings and Rewards to see the options
  3. Click on Kroger Community Rewards
  4. Scroll down until you see "I'm a Customer"
  5. Click on "View Details" to go to the Sign In screen
  6. Next, click on Create an Account
  7. Fill in the requested information (see note 1 and 2 below)
  8. Near the bottom of the screen click on Create Account

Note 1: You can go to most any email service website and create a new email address just for your Kroger account. Kroger will send you emails frequently and will offer the opportunity for receiving a lot of emails with coupons, etc.

Note 2: Not your email password, but create a new password just for Kroger.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

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.
