New Southie

It is with a heavy heart that Caught in Southie reports, Phil Sheats, local resident and founder of New Southie – a South Boston based gay social group, passed away suddenly on February 7th.  Phil was an active participant in our community and he always had a smile for everyone. 

Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.  He will be missed.
