CKCS Class and Workshop Winter & Spring Schedule

Online Store is open now.

Here is a Link to the CKCS Store Registration Guide.

CKCS Tech Night - Monday - May 8, 2023 at 6 p.m.

A Ride and Drive Electrical Vehicles (EV) Event

Are you ready to charge into the future? Come find out what it's like to ride or drive an Electric Vehicle (EV). This is your chance to get up close and personal with an electric vehicle. EvolveKY is a nonprofit group of EV owners who want to show you why they are crazy about their electric cars. They are not automobile dealers and have no motive except to support and encourage EV ownership. Come find out firsthand why EvolveKy members are so enthusiastic about their electric vehicles. Owners of several makes and models of electric vehicles will be on hand to tell you about their EV, show you the features of their cars, and answer your questions about EVs.

Last year in May CKCS members were able to ride in one of the 11 Teslas that were available in the CKCS parking lot. One EvolveKY member generously encouraged participants to drive his EV on New Circle Road and experience the bolt of energy that only electric cars can do. Everyone who participated really enjoyed the activity and are encouraged to return to this year's event.

Come to Tech Night and see what all the fuss is about. There will not be a formal presentation. It will be a ride and drive event. Note that we will be meeting at 6 p.m. and not our usual time of 7 p.m. See you in May.

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
  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.
