Memorial to honor James Forni

Loving Community ~

On behalf of the Forni Family, we would like to invite the community to join us for a special memorial to honor James Forni on Saturday, July 11th, at 10:00am in the Casa Grande Gymnasium. Many people have asked how they can support the Forni Family. We will be coordinating an effort to collect desserts and cases of bottled water for the reception following the memorial on Saturday. The reception will be held in the Old Multi Purpose Room and it will flow onto the outdoor campus.

We will have volunteers available to receive your donations of baked goods and cases of bottled water on Friday, July 10th, from 1:00 – 4:30 pm. We are asking that all baked items are presented on disposable trays. We will have designated parking spots to make it an easy drop off. This is located in the front parking lot just next to the main office. It is our goal to receive the majority of the donations on Friday.

** If you can only drop off your items on Saturday morning, please do so between 7:30am ~ 9:00am.

Since James was so dedicated to the success of students and athletes, his family has established a memorial scholarship fund in James’ honor. If you would like to make a donation to show your support, please write a check payable to:


“The James Forni Memorial Scholarship Fund.”
Checks can be mailed to:Exchange Bank
2 East Washington Street, Petaluma CA. 94954


**We will also have an inspiration table at the memorial in which you can drop off your cards to the family.
