PEMBERVILLE - The Eastwood Committee to Save Our Elementaries plans to attend Monday night's Eastwood Board of Education meeting in the high school library.
The board meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the group plans to gather 10 minutes before the meeting.
The committee plans to ask the board to hold off on any spending of money or decisions related to a central campus elementary or any new construction until the committee has time to meet with the board and share information they have collected.
The committee organized in an effort to stop any levy that would consolidate the Luckey and Pemberville elementaries into one central campus elementary. Its slogan is "We voted no twice - no central elementary." Its mission statement is "Supporting the Eastwood School District while maintaining our local village elementaries."
The goal of the committee is to renovate and restore the buildings in Luckey and Pemberville to state-of-the-art facilities at a cost cheaper than a new facility, as has been done throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
The group claims membership consisting of local business people, educators, elected officials, builders and concerned residents from both villages and townships. 
The committee will additionally meet March 24 at 7 p.m. in the Eagle Room of Pisanello's Pizza, Pemberville.

Pemberville Village Council unanimously approved a resolution at its March 4 meeting that asks the district to maintain an elementary school in the village.
