The lights cast a yellow hue as Teresa Beard, Marina Gopadze and Katrina Fields wait on customers in the food booth at the Buchanan Firemen’s Carnival Monday night. They are among the many volunteers who take turns helping out during the annual carnival, which continues each evening through Sunday, July 4.  Photo by Ed McCoy
