Fall Colours
(DETM November Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
Well, what a windy and rainy October here in BC! I hope you were able to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful Fall colours.  
Palmer isn’t loving the change in weather from California. I think I had the same look on my face when I went out in the rain storm. We are hoping Palmer will adjust soon as a new Canadian!
Stay safe and strong.

Hilton PVR lounge
Imagine an adults-only roof top lounge with an infinity pool and amazing views of Banderas Bay. Now add in fresh sushi to snack on all day. That is the O’West Rooftop Lounge at the Hilton Puerto Vallarta.
In fact, this is where I and the agents on my Hilton Puerto Vallarta FAMs hang out. Also, all adult guests at The Hacienda by Hilton Puerto Vallarta have access to the O’West Lounge (and all of the Hilton Puerto Vallarta facilities.)
Don’t forget that the Hilton Puerto Vallarta and The Hacienda by Hilton Puerto Vallarta both qualify for the KRYSTAL KASH Agent Incentive Program.
