CKCS Tech Night - Monday - February 13, 2023 at 7:00 pm on ZOOM only

Cable TV Alternatives

Presented by Jim McCormick longtime CKCS member and officer

Are you feeling stuck with cable? Are you seeking alternatives? Have you watched your cable bill soar as you're trying to cut costs and save money? Many of us continue paying higher bills, failing to realize there are other options available.

Join us for Tech Night on Feb. 13 to learn about some alternatives from Jim McCormick, CKCS treasurer, who has used other sources for TV and phone for years. He will share with us what has worked well for him in Internet services, TV programming, streaming, and landline telephone alternatives.

Jim will also discuss some of the changes that are on the near horizon. Come find out from the guy who loves gadgets. Listen to Jim, do a little bit of homework, and decide which alternatives might save you money, work better for you, and provide you the services you want. If you want to learn more about FireTV, Direct TV, Google Chromecast, and Ooma, this is the Tech Night to attend.

Feel free to invite friends and family to attend. During the winter months we will be using Zoom.

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.
