The Villa Park Community Pride Commission has designated Andy Fillipp’s home on West Madison Street as “The Official Villa Park Holiday House.” Fillipp, who is a Villa Park firefighter/paramedic, creates an elaborate display of holiday lights outside of his home each year. He is pictured (left) on Friday, Dec. 4, with Leslie Allison-Seei, the chair of the pride commission. Allison-Seei noted that the commission presents its Holiday Decorating Awards to village homeowners each year. Fillipp received one of those awards in 2015. According to the commission’s rules, a homeowner can only win a Holiday Decorating Award once every five years. “Every year, his name keeps coming up,” said Allison-Seei of Fillipp. This year, we decided to give him a one-time, special award. It’s sort of a lifetime achievement award.”
