Part of the Earl Shaffer Foundation's mission is to place into publication the vast collection of poetry which Earl wrote over the course of his life. As a novel way to help accomplish this, Foundation member "Takoma Tedd" Lester has created "Songs of the Blue Ridge Runner," a lively album of songs with lyrics based on several of Earl's poems, and the Foundation recently published it as a CD. Proceeds from its sales will benefit hiking clubs and other causes which were important to Earl.
