The residence of Lynn Krill, at 106 W. 27th St., Northampton, draws large numbers of people nightly during the holidays season. They come to see the lighted decorations extending from the lawn to the chimney, including a lighted rotating North Pole directional sign to help Santa find his way. The Northampton Exchange Club sponsored a holiday outdoor decorating contest and awarded Krill first prize. PRESS PHOTOS BY AL RECKER
