Moniteau County Care Center residents had an exciting visit to the Museum of Missouri Military History in Jefferson City. This was located at the Ike Skelton National Guard site in Algoa.

They first walked around outside and took a close look at the equipment that was on display. There was a huge plane that took them 10 days to assemble. They were also able to see a few tanks and planes up close, as well.

Then, they went inside and saw some cannons, a helicopter and an old transportation car. It was neat to see how weapons and uniforms have evolved over the years. There was also an old suitcase that a chaplain had used that folded out into a portable piano and pocket Bibles, which they dispersed to the troops.

Mary came to play Dominos with residents this week. They enjoy when she comes.

The center ended its week with a few rounds of Bingo and watched a movie called "Mel," which is about a family that finds a giant tortoise and keeps it as a pet. This was a very cute family movie that the residents enjoyed.
