Maggie Lee was a great supporter of the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society and the Northfield Historical Society. When she passed away it was her wish that her very extensive collection of cat memorabilia and collectibles would be given to these two organizations with the intent that they be sold and the funds split between them. This is a large collection with 100′s of items and not all are cat related. If you are a collector of cat memorabilia, antiques, or would just like a remembrance of Maggie Lee, don’t miss this live auction of this collection! Saturday, November 16th, starting at 3 PM, at the Northfield Eagles Club, 304 S. Water St., Northfield. Cash bar and light lunch available for purchase! All proceeds will be split between the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society and the Northfield Historical Society.
