CKCS Tech Night - Monday - May 09

at 6:00 pm or 6:45 pm or 7:30 pm

Come Ride with Us and Experience the Future

presented by Mike Proctor and members of Evolve Ky


Back in January at Tech Night we learned about the history, present, and future of EVs, Electrical Vehicles. During that presentation our speaker, Mike Proctor of Evolve Ky, offered to come back in the spring for an EV Ride Event at CKCS. May Tech Night will be your chance to get up close and personal with an electrical vehicle. Evolve will be in the CKCS parking lot to give rides and an overview of the car's computer screen.

Evolve Ky is a nonprofit group of enthusiastic EV owners who want to show you why they are crazy about their electric cars. Their goal is to educate others about the benefits of electric vehicles.

Tech Night this month will be set up differently than usual. We will not be having a group presentation. Instead, we will have 6 slots available for rides at 6:00 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. for a total of 18 slots. You will come to CKCS a few minutes before your designated time and will take a ride in the car for about 30 minutes and followed by a 15-minute presentation on the car's computer touch screen.

To participate in Tech Night call CKCS (859)373-1000 during office hours to sign up for a slot no later than May 5th. There will be 3 people assigned to each car. If there is an overflow of interest, this will give us time to contact Evolve KY about providing another vehicle.

Come to May Tech Night to see and feel what it's like to ride in an electric car.




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.
