When one or more of these valves fail to work properly, the result can be serious heart disease. Join Jan from Methodist Hospital and learn how the valves work in proper heart function, what can go wrong, and how problems can be fixed. Registration required.

Steve Radack Community Center
Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 1 p.m.
Musical bingo is a fun spin on bingo that allows you to jam out to snippets of your favorite songs while competing against other music lovers! Instead of letters and numbers, the caller, or “DJ” in this case, plays 10-15 seconds of a song. The players who recognize the song and see it listed on their card mark the square with a bingo chip. The DJ keeps playing snippets of songs until someone gets five chips in a row, or another approved pattern on their bingo card, and calls out “Bingo!” Please call 832-927-3000 to register. More information can be found at hcp4.net/radack.
