August 2.

8-02.

Look familiar?  It’s our area code which makes August 2, Vermont day.
 
The only area code in the state 802 has become a symbol of pride for Vermonters. 
   
Businesses have used the signature area code as a symbol on merchandise and souvenirs.
   
We asked people what Vermont means to them.

Briege Riley and Caitlyn Balon say Vermont feels like a unified community.

“I think its so community based and you know everyone.” Said Briege. “Yeah everyone knows each other. Like when you come to Church Street it’s I know that person over there and you have a short conversation with them and you move on”.
 
Although there was no specific events happening around Vermont on Wednesday the Boston Red Sox will celebrate Vermont night at Fenway Park on Saturday.
