Hundreds Gather to Honor Prinster Brothers
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. On Friday more than 200 people gathered in downtown Grand Junction for the unveiling of a historical sculpture honoring the Prinster Brothers.
The sculpture, titled A Cut Above, depicts the original four brothers who founded City Market in 1924.
Sculptor James Haire based the art on early photos of the four brothers from the 1920's.
The sculpture is located at the southwest corner of West Main and Spruce Streets.
Descendants of all of four brothers were at Friday's ceremony.
Tony Prinster, former president and CEO of City Market, said, "The number of people that turned out for this, I was very impressed with that. The other impression I have is all the former employees going back 30 and 40 and close to 50 years who are here. And it's a real honor to have your ancestors recognized in this fashion."
This is the seventh sculpture project by The Legends of the Grand Valley Sculpture Project Committee.
The four brothers have forever left their mark on the Grand Valley, setting the bar for community involvement and philanthropy.
