For 60 years, Music & Arts, the largest band and orchestra instrument retailer and lesson provider in the country, has been helping music teachers, band directors and beginner musicians live out their passion for music. The company works directly with schools, parents and communities to ensure music classrooms and band members are fully outfitted with the best instruments and music accessories available.
To celebrate Music & Arts unwavering passion for music during this milestone birthday year, they just launched a “Share Your Passion” Facebook Contest, inviting musicians age 13-18 to submit a photo and description that explains why they are passionate about music.

As part of Orchard Supply Hardware’s expansion into the Oregon market, the team spent time last week hosting a hiring event at the Oregon Zoo. The goal was to find 160 talented Oregonians to staff Orchard’s two new stores in Portland and Tigard. Recognizing a good story, the LANE team reached out to regional broadcast and print outlets to make sure the word got out about the hiring event. This led to great coverage from each of the four Portland-area broadcast outlets (with one visiting the hiring fair twice!), along with several print placements.
The end result? Orchard had never seen higher attendance at a hiring event! Over the course of two days, the event set internal records with 900 applicants and Orchard was able to fill every single position at both stores, which is virtually unheard of.

Last Friday was National Wear Red Day, and we decided to celebrate the day by joining the movement and wearing red. We also kicked off the morning by feasting on a heart healthy breakfast. It was bright and cheery around the breakfast table, and it was great to see so many LANE folks embracing the red theme.
