SUDBURY — Vice President Mike Pence spent his Labor Day Weekend in the Green Mountain State and enjoyed Vermont’s official summertime treat.

WCAX-TV reported Air Force Two touched down at Burlington Airport early Friday afternoon. A motorcade traveled south on Interstate 89. Videos posted to Facebook showed the motorcade then traveling west on Route 4 through Killington.

The TV report said Pence was planning to spend the holiday weekend on Lake Hortonia in Hubbardton. While there, they stopped at local ice cream parlor, The Sudbury Shoppe on Route 30.

The shop posted a picture to Facebook Pence with his wife, Karen, holding maple creemees.

“I had the privilege of serving them their first and only VT Maple Creemee, thank you Mr. & Mrs. Vice President,” read the caption.

By Wednesday morning the post 369 reactions from other Facebook users, as well as 44 comments — all of them positive, with “awesome” repeated many times. One commenter, noting the Harvard University t-shirt worn by Karen Pence, wrote, “Mrs. Vice President need a University of Vermont shirt.”

Elsewhere on social media, some Twitter and Facebook users in Addison County alerted people to the supposition that Pence would travel in a motorcade from Burlington south through Middlebury and on to Route 30 en route to Lake Hortonia. This brought out a handful of protesters waving homemade signs in downtown Middlebury on Friday afternoon for a last-minute demonstration. But they never saw the vice president.

Both of Vermont’s U.S. senators issued statements wishing Pence and his wife a pleasant visit.

“We welcome the Vice President to our state and hope enjoys his stay,” wrote Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Marcelle and I and Governor Scott were with the Vice President and his wife in the Capitol Rotunda this morning for the sad occasion of the arrival of Senator John McCain’s casket,” wrote Sen. Patrick Leahy’s office. “I am glad to hear that they are able to now visit the most beautiful state in the country, and I hope they enjoy their time in Vermont.”
