Summit resident Eebie Zobitz proudly displays her grandfather’s high chair that has held at least four generations. After it was restored by the SAGE Furniture Restoration Workshop recently, the high chair looks new despite being more than 100 years old; it was used by Eebie’s grandfather, possibly his parents, Eebie’s parents, herself, and Eebie’s children. Her grandfather, Warren Starrett, born in 1912, is pictured as a baby.
