My name is Jan Cortez, your State Coordinator. Most of our counties are up for adoption and looking for some one with an avid interest in counties in this State. If you are interested in adopting any of the available counties, please contact me. If your interest is more along the lines of providing materials, doing look-ups, typing, etc., I'd also like to hear from you.
