Would you like to join us in creating a memorial for Gerard Cace?
Gerard touched all of Longview in one way or another. He served on many boards; he catered our parties; he gave generously of his time; he greeted us at Johnny Cace's, and in the past three years at the Historic Longview Farmers Market.
Gerard touched people beyond Longview as well. As many local citizens have experienced, visitors to our city often remember Longview because of their experience at Johnny Cace's, a landmark with over 60 years of tradition in our community.
There are two ways for you to participate in this memorial:
- You can contribute to a Texas Historical Marker for Johnny Cace's Restaurant. The estimated 2012 price for a marker is $2000.
- Another opportunity is have a tree planted from you or your organization. There will be 12 crepe myrtle trees planted in front of the restaurant with plaques acknowledging the donors of each tree. Each tree is a donation of $200.
You can also donate online here.
