|History for Lakeview Shoreliners ||Lakeview, NY |
The Lakeview Shoreliners was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in the village of Lakeview in the town of Hamburg, New York. Formed in 1962 by Al Ahmed, among others, the group performed in parades for its first five years of existence. The 45-member group was sponsored by the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Association.|
The Shoreliners first entered competition in 1967. By 1969 they were marching about 85 members, under the field command of drum major Mike Stevens. The corps' first taste of the big time came in 1970, where the group from Lakeview competed in Class A of the World Open Championships in Boston. They finished 30th.
The corps merged with the 71st Lancers of Cheektowaga to form the Imperial Regiment in 1975.
