We are excited to have Tim Anderson Co-Host Our Afternoon Parade

Tim Anderson - Emcee and lead singer for The Naked Karate Girls.

Most people would rather jump from a bridge than do public speaking. Tim has no problem speaking in public and wearing outrageous costumes while doing it. He has been singing with N.K.G since it’s incarnation 11 years ago and now emcees weddings.  Tim lives in nearby Loveland Ohio but has enjoyed helping Lebanon Chamber with their events over the past year.


We are thrilled to announce that Lebanon's Own, Savannah Shafer will be co-hosting our Evening Parade this year!

One of our MC’s this year is Lebanon's own, Savannah Shafer. She is a communications professional who runs her own PR consulting firm, UptownPR, right here in Lebanon. Savannah has been working in communication since finishing her education a decade and a half ago. She has accumulated a massive amount of experience ranging from media relations, public education, journalism, graphic design, legislative writing, and even co-hosted a morning radio show when in college.


She has a BS in Communication from Liberty University, as well as minor degrees in both French and Voice Performance. Savannah has been using her skills in the position of Director of Communication for our Warren County government for over a decade and took a step down to open her own firm, giving her young family flexibility. Savannah is married to lifelong resident, Joe Shafer, and they have six children, ages 1 to 8 years old. Savannah is delighted to be offered the role of MC, she is a proud resident of Lebanon who celebrates the city’s success, its rich heritage, and the great efforts of the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce.
