This year, we would like to make a Jeep themed Christmas tree to donate to the Akron Children's Hospital Fund. They have a world renowned burn care unit. Each year, hundreds of trees are auctioned off in December to raise money to help the Children of Northeast Ohio. If you can, make or  find some Jeep related ornaments to decorate the tree or lights, toy Jeeps for under the tree and ornaments are all welcome.

28th Annual Spring WILLYS Jeep Reunion & Swap Meet - Ohio

June 19 - 20, 2020 CANCELLED

May 15 - 16, 2020

Aurora, Ohio

The 28th annual Willys Reunion (Spring of May 2020) will once again be held at the Bertram Inn located in historic Aurora, Ohio. As always, the show will host a large swap meet where vendors from all over the country will be selling New-Old-Stock and good used parts to help restore your Jeep and keep it original and on the road for years to come.

This yearís feature vehicle will be the Universal Jeep CJ5, which is celebrating itís 65th year.

Our featured guest speaker this year is Phil Norvoid, owner of the Epic Willys Adventure ( which is an invitation-only event where teams traveling in all-original vintage Jeeps, cruise Americaís byways in a unique adventure - no GPS or cell phones allowed! This yearís trip will trace the route of the Oregon Trail.  

Phil is an entrepreneur driven by challenges, passion and empowering others. MaxBilt LLC, formed in 2008, has evolved into a manufacturer of high quality solution-based products for the offroad aftermarket, a custom fabrication shop building vehicles where imagination is the only limitation, as well as a general repair facility for all makes and models. He encourages a comfortable environment where employees understand the balance of work hard and play hard. He is a huge supporter of his wifeís business, Legends Marketing, a grassroots fueled company built on curating connections between business and their customers. Phil is one of the founding members of the Epic Willys Adventure, a bi-annual excursion where the crew sets out on a 2000 mi journey across the country in vintage jeeps and limited resources. Finding ways to involve friends and family in all of these endeavors is at the core of his values. Keeping tabs on Phil and his crew is easily done through their constant connection to social media. Phil's time is spent traveling the country sharing stories, in the shop spinning wrenches, with his amazing wife and kids, or out in the woods with a chainsaw, all the while scheming the next big idea.

Our technical event will be a follow-up to last yearís T-90 transmission rebuild. Again, well known Willys Jeep collector and restoration expert, Joe Deyoung, will be rebuilding of a Dana 18 transfer case under the big-top tent in the vehicle display area. We will then raffle off the  transfer case during the banquet.

Of course, like last year, we will host a drive/caravan and a picnic on Friday night. On Saturday there will be a lunch stand set up in the vehicle display area.

This is one show you really do not want to miss.
