Somerton volunteer honored in citywide ceremony

Lou DeCree, president of the Daniel Boyle Athletic Program in Somerton, was awarded the token of appreciation award by Keep Philadelphia Beautiful Friday.

Phoebe Coles, the not-for-profit’s executive director, said she appreciates his effort to make Somerton’s parks enjoyable. She considered DeCree as a recipient after reading an article about him on NEast Philly.

“Mr. DeCree fits all the specifications that we look for,” Coles said.
