The second annual Johnny Davis Tribute Ride will be held on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Registration for the ride and poker run starts at 11 a.m., with kickstands up by noon. Starting point is Johnny's Restaurant, the restaurant Davis built in 1948.

There is a cost per player for the poker run and rider or passenger for the ride.

Participants can meet at Johnny's for breakfast prior to the start of the ride.

Davis was a World War II veteran, lifetime member of the American Legion Post No. 7 for 66 years and builder and owner of Johnny's Restaurant.
