History/Origin Name after Roger Garrick who was born in Invercargill, New Zealand, in 1948. Roger was a founding member of the Sanderson Conference of the St Vincent De Pauls Society in 1983. He was a man of charity and would offer food, bed and clothes to those in need. Subsequently, Roger would be voted in as President of the Sanderson Conference for many years. He assisted with finding donations and providing hampers to children at Christmas. Together, under Roger's presidency, the conference sponsored a number of refugee families and set up homes for their arrival. Through trips to island communities, Roger established with Croker and Bathurst Islands, the delivery of bread for school breakfast programs. Between jobs Roger would collect boxes of bread and deliver to the barge to be shipped fortnightly to the islands; some 7000 loaves a year. Roger was a grassroots man and tirelessly worked to help those in need. He died in 2008 aged 60.
