Program Information

The April program, presented by Robert Silva, is about the legendary Trinidad lawman Lewis M. Kreeger, who served as constable, city marshal, sheriff, under sheriff, and deputy sheriff in Las Animas County from the 1870s until his death in Trinidad in 1913. He was born in Missouri in 1848 and rode with Quantrill’s Raiders for the Confederate cause during the Civil War. Mr. Silva, great grandson of Lewis M. Kreeger, published his first biography of Kreeger in 2015, titled Lead in Trinidad, which is the focus of the April presentation. He published his second book, a sequel in May 2017, titled Lead in Trinidad II, Lawman – Gunman.

Robert Silva, who grew up in Northern New Mexico in the 1950s, retired from the aerospace industry after 46 years of working for the Department of Defense, the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Since then, he has devoted his leisure time to researching and writing. Silva plans to write a series of children’s books under the heading of 2 Turkeys in a Tree.

Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month, except June, July, August and December, at the Union Depot.

  • A sit-down dinner is served at 6 p.m. ($20)
  • Featured speaker’s presentation begins at 7:10 p.m.
