Alice Williams Print Page
The Nungarin Road Board Offices was renamed in 1994 in memory of Alice Williams, a prominent and dedicated member of the Nungarin Country Womens Association from its foundation in 1924, who held the highest offices in the State organisation.
In July 1994, the Nungarin Shire Council moved unanimously to dedicate the building to commemorate Alice Williams in recognition of her untiring efforts to improve the living conditions for country women, their children, and their families.
The Alice Williams Memorial Building is highly valued by the local community, as, since 1968, it has been the home of the oldest branch of the Country Womens Association Western Australia, established in 1924.
