Forgot Your Password?

If you are confronted with these words when you are trying to sign up on a website and are very frustrated, come to Tech Night this month and learn about password management.

Kenneth Tubaugh will be the guest speaker. He will be demonstrating the Password Manager that he uses, things to consider with passwords and security, how to choose a password manager program, and what not to do when creating and using a password.

If forgetting your password is bugging you, come learn how you can solve that problem. Tech Night is open to the public and guests are welcome.



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.
