JAMESTOWN, CO- Residents of a Colorado mountain town devastated by September's flooding are thankful for a chance to gather together once a week like they used to.

The Jamestown Mercantile is now open on Saturdays for dinner and live music, drawing those who are staying in town and others who had to move away.
It's the only night the "Merc" is open. Owner Rainbow Shultz cooks up a different meal each week. Everyone eats and catches up before the music and the dancing starts.
The flooding has also split up students of the town's small schoolhouse, with some attending classes as a group in nearby Boulder and the rest at a retreat center near town.
A joint holiday play is one of several events planned to keep them connected.
