Berkeley Tuolumne Camp burns down

http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/state&id=9219059

We received news this morning that the camp that my family has been going to for over 40 years burned down as a result of the Rim Fire yesterday evening.
Needless to say, we’re pretty devastated. We’re wearing Tuolumne sweatshirts, drinking out of Tuolumne mugs, and singing the Tuolumne song today. Hopefully it will be rebuilt fast, but 91 years of camp mementos can’t be recovered. And it won’t be the same.

“There’s no place like Camp Tuolumne, there’s no spot that I would rather be. The swimming’s fine, the meals are great, folks who come, their joys relate. So come again, to fish, to swim, to rest, or to go to points of interest. And so, my friends, the fun is here, at Tuolumne.”
