Wayne,

Thank you for the year and half of service. You've contributed a lot to the
CCG and I have appreciated having you as a co-chair. I look forward to
seeing your name on github work items and seeing your awesome contributions
to the community.

Wishing you all the best at Spruce and here.

Cheers,

-Heather
