Fishermen find 11-year-old message in bottle

WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An 11-year-old message from a Kindred seventh-grade class finally found its first readers last weekend.

WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An 11-year-old message from a Kindred seventh-grade class finally found its first readers last weekend.

Two fishermen found the note on the shores of the Sheyenne River in West Fargo. It was in a plastic bottle that washed up next to a dock.

It was signed by five members of a Kindred seventh-grade geography class in 2001.

The note asked the finder to write a letter to the Kindred school and describe the circumstances under which the bottle was found.

The bottle included a 34-cent stamp — which is a little short of today's 45-cent price for first-class postage.
