Each year the Extended family tries to hold a reunion. Whenever the the reunion is held in South Georgia near where Benjamin and Blansett Willis lived, the reunions usually include time to visit the Family Cemetery and old homestead, as well as other local attractions. During the other years, the family decides by consensus where the would like to meet. Usually this is dependent on someone stepping up and taking the lead in getting it arranged.
