The CPGC Café has been a fixture of the Haverford community since its inception in May 2005, and Marlen Lofaro played a large role in making the Café a special place for so many. The Café was envisioned and realized as a space where "Students, faculty and staff who are concerned about global issues now have a place to gather...a social space where ideas can percolate into action...where people were able to meet and organize.” Since nearly the beginning, Marlen’s welcoming presence has been synonymous with the space and her special attention to detail and personal touches helped to make the Café a community hub enjoyed by students, faculty, staff and visitors alike. Now after 15 years, Haverford has made the difficult decision to retire the Café in order to increase classroom space to safeguard the health and well-being of the student populace in response to COVID-19. Friends, alumni, and colleagues are invited to join us in virtual community to celebrate Marlen and her contribution to the CPGC.
