March 31, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

Say so long to March and the last of the miserable winter of '94. Say hello to April and the first full month of spring. If this isn't cause for celebration, I'll eat my Easter bonnet.

Now, here are all the other reasons . . .

A talented trio appears at 7 p.m. April 6 at Anne Arundel Community College.
