Myra Gable, one of the founders of the Yolo Adult Day Health Center, has been selected as honorary chairwoman of the 11th annual Blues Harvest. The event, a fundraiser for the center, will run from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at the Heidrick Ag History Center in Woodland.

In 1975, Gable was appointed to the newly created Adult Day Health Task Force, a committee of the Yolo County Commission on Aging. She served on the steering committee that forged a partnership between Yolo County, which agreed to construct the center; Eskaton, the initial nonprofit health care provider; and a new community nonprofit corporation dedicated to raising funds to start and maintain the center.

The nonprofit, known as Friends of Adult Day Health Care, also adopted as its mission the education of the community about this innovative approach to care. The Yolo Adult Day Health Center, the first built-to-purpose adult day health center in California, opened its doors in 1984 and has been serving the diverse needs of the frail and disabled adults in the county ever since.

Gable served on the Friends of Adult Day Health Care board of directors from 1983 to 2003, holding offices on both the board and related community advisory committees. Over the years, she spearheaded multiple fundraising campaigns that permitted building renovation and vastly improved services provided by the center while informing the community about the role adult day health care plays in the continuum of health care.

The Blues Harvest features entertainment by the Kyle Rowland Band, refreshments and an auction for unusual travel and entertainment opportunities, gifts and original works of art. Tickets are $45, available at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in Davis, and the Yolo Adult Day Health Center, 20 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland.
