A retired high school science teacher, Melissa Warner joined OBUUC in the mid-nineties.  Because of her environmental interests, she joined with others to form the Green Sanctuary Committee and worked to earn UUA accreditation in 2006. Green Sanctuary has continued its work on a more moderate level.  Melissa and a friend initiated ACT III, a discussion and support group for any one of us that claims to be in Act III of their own life story.  Meeting monthly, we discuss topics of interest.  Melissa can also be found at a Sierra Club event or pulling invasive plants in local parks. She and spouse Jay have four grown children/stepchildren (and assorted grandchildren) that live in VA, CA, MI and AZ.
