Mike & Laurie Placella

Mike is a retired VP of Sales and Laurie is a Paraprofessional for 4th Grade at Burgess Elementary, right here in Sturbridge. We have been Sturbridge residents for over 25 years and have two sons, Michael 28 and Gino 23 years old.

Mike was a board member of the Sturbridge Little League, ran the recreation basketball program, and was on the Tantasqua School board for many years. Laurie was president of the Tantasqua Education Foundation and Burgess Elementary PTO for several years.

We love being active participants in this community and now Tutti Quanti is our way to stay connected and serve.

Please stop by! We’d love to see you.

Why Tutti Quanti?

Many have asked where we came up with the name “Tutti Quanti” for our store. Well, this is a photo of  Mike and his dad or “Poppy” as we all called him. Poppy would always start our Sunday family meal with a toast and at the end, we would all clink our glasses with “Tutti Quanti” – which means “to everyone”!

We lost this amazing man in July of 2021 at 92 years young – what a great way to honor him and all he has done for us.
