Michael Zahs digs through a stack of quilts made from cloth bags Tuesday during a Reminisce Society meeting. Zahs grew up on a century farm and remembers wearing clothes made from the bags his mother would save. Aside from adding to his large collection of cloth bags, he is involved in historic preservation, cemetery work and state and local history.
