When Jim Sayre, a renowned local Abraham Lincoln impersonator, takes off his stovetop hat following his Chautauqua presentation at Anderson County High School on Feb. 12, it may be one of his final appearances.
Sayre, who has been impersonating the 16th president of the United States for the past 33 years, said he’s not sure whether to hang up his hat for good.
“I’m 80 years old. That decision is not firm at this time,” he added. “In the wintertime, I need something to do.”
