For the Deacons Quorum activity the boys learned how to grill on the BBQ and cook with Dutch Ovens.  Garret's YM leaders now are Brad Murray (2nd counselor in Bishopric), Kirt (his dad), and Brian Crenshaw.  The activity was at the Crenshaw house.  The boys in Deacons Quorum this year are Garret, Lincoln Murray, Korbin Crenshaw, Nathan Mallonnee, Cole Olsen, and Nolan Orndorff. Garret is the Deacons Quorum president.  His presidency is Nolan 1st counselor, Lincoln 2nd counselor, and Lincoln secretary.  It's going to be a fun year in Deacons Quorum.
