The town of Buchanan continues to work on its response to the group, Freedom From Religion Foundation.

BOTETOURT CO., Va. -

Buchanan leaders are preparing a response after the town's carnival came under fire.

As WDBJ7 told you earlier this month, the Freedom From Religion Foundation asked organizers to stop praying at the beginning of the carnival each night.

Mayor Larry Hall says he working with town lawyers to craft a letter to the group.

But, he says the town doesn't run the carnival, the volunteers do -and it can't keep them from expressing themselves.

Hall says the town is hoping to have a letter drafted and sent to the group by the end of the summer.
