Be our Valentine: To our community organizers, with love

Dear user group organizers,

As Valentine’s Day is upon us, we would like to express our gratitude for everything that you do for the Elastic Community. We truly appreciate all the passion, care, and thoughtfulness you put toward the success of your local user groups and the growth of the community as a whole.

With much love,

Elastic and the Community Team
