The latest technology with Freddy Peralta and KY Trade

Freddy Peralta, owner of KY Trade, will be the presenter for Tech Night. He will be accompanied by his technology experts and will be talking about the newest components and software. He will also share his latest FFREDDY TIPS to keep us safe in this ever changing world of technology.

Freddy has been a supporter of CKCS since 1989, so we will be taking this opportunity to celebrate our partnership and wish him well in his new adventure. Cake and punch will be served.

Be sure to attend and let Freddy know how much you have appreciated his support and friendship for the past 28 years.


Changes to 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.

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 the Kroger Community Rewards Program.

You can also do this online with your computer or smart phone at www.kroger.com. Don't forget that the CKCS NPO number is 11119.

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.
