Today the Hartford Courant reported on the rebuilding process of O'Rourke's.

Today, there are visible signs of a rebirth at the fire-ravaged Main Street restaurant, as volunteers do carpentry work and pour concrete on the eve of the rebuilding committee's latest fundraiser.

From their article entitled, "O'Rourke's Diner Shows Some Signs Of A Rebirth" by Alaine Griffin.

A credit to the hard work and dedication of all those involved, O'Rourke's reopened about four months after this article was published.
