First Annual James Ratliff Car Cruise-In

AVILLA – The Avilla Diner & Dairy Treat hosted a cruise-in on Saturday, August 5th, held in memory of James Ratliff, who enjoyed spending time with his family and had a passion for racing and car shows.

Coordinated by Alexis (Lexi) Ludwig, a friend of the family, the cruise-in was a delightful, heartfelt tribute that included car club enthusiasts, friends, and loved ones.

There were approximately 30 vehicles representing a wide variety of years, makes, and models of motorcycles, trucks, and cars on display.  Spectators and participants also enjoyed music, voting for a “People’s Choice” award, taking part in a 50/50 raffle, as well as engaging in great conversation, and eating good food.

Ratliff Family OHNLudwig and the Ratliff family, Jenny, Kyle, and Seth, want to thank everyone that came to this year’s event and look forward to seeing them next year.
