Next Monday, May 29, Memorial Day, Woody's Waterside at 3051 Stringfellow Road in St. James City will host the 9th Annual Pine Island All American Memorial Day BBQ and Picnic and Canned Food Drive featuring Yard Dog Charlie from 2-5 p.m.

For 10 years from 2002-2012, Yard Dog Charlie was a founding member of the legendary Yard Dogs and helped develop what is now known as "Florida Swamp Music."

The Memorial Day event will feature Woody's pig roast, house smoked ribs, beef and chicken along with drink and food specials.

And, there's always the chance of some surprise special guests.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern women's organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.

Today Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Typically it marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Woody's will also be collecting canned foods, tooth paste, soap, etc., to be donated to the Pine Island Food Pantry. There will be raffles and a 50/50 drawing all to benefit the pantry.

This Memorial Day also marks the 8th anniversary of Yard Dog Charlie performing Mardi Gras Mondays at Woody's.
