Our local meditation group here in NH is pretty much as described, however we have our Dhamma discussions between meditation sessions. Usually there is socializing after the second meditation period, where new people or those interested in particular topics have an opportunity to ask questions or request resources.
If you have an opportunity, my suggestion would be to get online and check out a few other meetings and or sanghas in the surrounds, even out of state when you can, just to gather ideas to bring back to your group.
Hope this helps.
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
