American Heart Month Tip: Most of the sodium Americans eat is found in processed foods. Eat highly processed foods less often and in smaller portions—especially cheesy foods, such as pizza; cured meats, such as bacon, sausage, hot dogs, and deli/luncheon meats; and ready-to-eat foods, like canned chili, ravioli and soups. Fresh foods are generally lower in sodium.

Thank you to the MC JV and Varsity High School Boys Basketball Team for volunteering to ref our K-3rd grade basketball program! These are just a few of the team members who have volunteered their time! These young players really look up to the High School teams!

American Heart Month Tip: Cut back on salt little by little—and pay attention to the natural tastes of various foods. Your taste for salt will lessen over time. Additionally, keep salt off the kitchen counter and the dinner table and substitute spices, herbs, garlic, vinegar or lemon juice to season foods.

Our 2019 Y Winners Tickets are on sale now! Contact a YMCA Board member, Y Volunteer Ticket Seller or the YMCA Front Desk!

American Heart Month Tip: Take a Snooze! Lack of sleep has been associated with elevated cholesterol and blood pressure. Adults need at least seven, but no more than nine hours of sleep at night to aid with the prevention of heart disease. Children need 10-12 hours of sleep per night.
