"Well, I think that we’re probably one of the major resources not only for educational services but also for training and for a lot of cultural events. If you asked me this question in 1978, I would have said that we were the best kept secret—I don’t think we are anymore, although I hear that. I think people do know that we’re out there; we’re there to provide services; we’re there to be a resource for the community. So I think that our outreach has really been much more effective recently than it was many years ago."
