Safer Futures Women's Shelter of Portage County recently hosted the dedication of a newly renovated playroom affectionately called "Bo's Place." A special plaque was hung dedicating the play area to the memory of Robert "Bo" Biltz who worked at the shelter for many years and passed away this past May.
Volunteers from the Rootstown Ward, Youngstown Ohio Stake, where Bo was a member, installed new flooring and trim, and repaired and painted the walls and ceiling. Murals of cartoon characters were also painted throughout the playroom and new toys were added to complete the room. The love that Bo brought to those who were fortunate to know him will continue to radiate to children who will find happiness playing within the walls of Bo's Place, friends said.
Ward members also repaired walls and ceilings throughout the shelter and made new curtains and toss pillows to brighten rooms. A number of the youth pulled weeds and did other yard work.
