Volunteers at Romper Day

Romper day is a community celebration of the summer parks program in Allentown founded in 1914 by Harry C. Trexler. Children from numerous Allentown park programs come together once a summer on Romper Day to take part in various events and games.

Each year in August, the Allentown Rotary Club provides volunteers to assist with serving food and refreshments to the children who participate in this annual celebration, sponsored by The Trexler Trust.
