The author’s relatives are amazed by the find of a local diver’s discovery. Diver Dave Leander found a nearly 100-year-old message in a bottle and it’s causing quite a stir in Michigan.

Dave Leander of the Great Lakes Dive Center happened upon the cool find while diving for treasure 30 feet below the surface of the St. Clair River last June. According to Huff Parents:
