“West Charlotte High School's high-stepping Lions marched out their spanking new band uniforms yesterday afternoon for a trial run prior to tomorrow's Carrousel Parade. Cymbal smasher Robert Steele and the rest of the Lions took part in a special ceremony at the school to thank all of the people in the community who helped raise the more than $5,000 needed to pay for the navy blue, maroon and gold uniforms that had been ordered about a year ago. The new uniforms replace the outfits the Lions had been wearing for some 21 years.” Nov. 24, 1971
