us get over cabin fever. How about becoming a county coordinator?

for them. Those available are GREENE, LUCAS, MAHASKA, MONROE, MILLS &
GUTHRIE counties. Take a tour of the counties at

It's February and as we all know, its the month for Sweethearts. What a great
time to ask IAGenWeb to be your "Sweetheart" !
We have five wonderful counties (Guthrie, Greene, Lucas, Monroe and Poweshiek)
who are looking for someone to give them the tender loving care the are so
deserving of. This is a great time to take a look at a these counties and see
which one is best suited to you, and then say "Hey! I'm going to adopt this
county and give myself a Valentine!"
To learn more about becoming a county coordinator, please read the section in
the Volunteer Primer at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm and then if you are
still interested in hosting an IAGenWeb county ( Greene, Guthrie, Lucas, Monroe
or Poweshiek counties) please email us at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org for
