NEWARK, NJ - Marilyn and Hugo Pfaltz of Summit will receive the Founder’s Award at Greater Newark Conservancy’s “Making Our City Bloom Gala” on May 10. Marilyn Pfaltz is retiring in 2018 after a 30-year volunteer commitment as a member of the Conservancy’s Board of Directors.

Marilyn Pfaltz joined the Conservancy Board in 1998 and has served as Co-Chair of the Development Committee since 1997, when it was still the Capital Campaign Committee. A founding partner of P & R Associates, she received her B.A. from Bryn Mawr College, PA and D.H.L from Bloomfield College, NJ. She lives in Summit with her husband, Hugo Pfaltz is also a Conservancy supporter whose great grandparents arrived in Newark before the Civil War.

“For 31 years, Greater Newark Conservancy has provided programs and services that contribute to a cleaner and greener city, better health and nutrition for Newark residents and new opportunities for people returning to the community from the criminal justice system,” noted Robin Dougherty, the Conservancy’s Executive Director. “Marilyn and her husband, Hugo, were there from the start, and have helped us pursue our mission with passion and determination. Their love for the City of Newark, its people and the environment have been greatly appreciated and will be hard to replace.”
